As of 05 January 2015 Syrian nationals need a visa to enter Lebanon. Travellers from Syria are urged to check the available information before commencing their trip (for example at www.general-security.gov.lb) and should provide information about their intended travel to Lebanon in Arabic translation. Also, long delays at the border should be expected.
Furthermore, the Embassy would like to point out that the visa-requirement is also relevant for persons who have already spent a longer time in Lebanon. However, legally binding information can only be given by the Lebanese authorities.
