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.

“Recognition in Germany” is the official online portal for the Federal Recognition Act. It provides migrants and foreign skilled workers with information on how and where they can submit an application for recognition of the vocational qualifications they have gained abroad. The “Recognition Finder” enables them to identify the competent body for their own particular case with just a few clicks of the mouse. Advisors visiting the site will also find all the relevant information they need regarding vocational recognition procedures and the underlying legal principles. All content is available in German and English. The portal is operated by the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is financed within the scope of the “Integration through training – IQ” funding programme.
