Participants in the program who have a Lebanese identity card (hawiyyi) need to only show their card along with the passport from their country of citizenship to enter Lebanon. Participants who do not have a Lebanese identity card should consult the nearest Lebanese embassy or consulate to determine whether they need a visa. Be sure to inform them of your Lebanese heritage.
In many cases, visas can be obtained upon arrival in Beirut at the airport. It is generally required that passports are valid for 6 months after your scheduled departure. Additionally, your passport should not have any Israeli stamps. If your passport contains an entrance or exit stamp from Israel, you will need to have a new passport issued before you arrive in Lebanon since you will not be allowed to enter the country.
Yes, travel and health insurance are required for participation in the program. You will need to send us proof of at least $50,000 of travel health and repatriation insurance at least two weeks before you arrive in Lebanon.
