Disabled access

The British Embassy in Beirut is keen to ensure that its buildings and services are fully accessible to disabled members of the public. Wherever possible, we have made our buildings and services accessible. Sometimes however, this is not possible due to security or other restrictions. In these situations, we will endeavour to provide a service or access to a building in an alternative way to ensure equality of access for disabled people.

Contact us

If you need to visit us or use our services and feel that they may be inaccessible to you, please contact us and we will try to find an alternative way of providing access for you.
