Welcome to the website of the German Embassy in Beirut
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.
The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Beirut is seeking to fill an opening for one female security officer starting January 2015 for an (initial) limited time period of 6 months.
