In case you missed our event last week at the Think Global Conference, you can catch it here!

Lebanon's keynote remarks at the Think Global Conference were delivered by IDAL Chairman Dr. Mazen Soueid, who highlighted Lebanon's human resources and the potential of investing in Lebanon despite the current challenges. His remarks were followed by a presentation titled "Investment Opportunities in Lebanon" by IDAL's Director of Investor Relations, Mrs. Amira Mourad, who focused on key themes ranging from IDAL's business matchmaking platform, to leveraging Lebanon's agri-food industry, healthcare industry, the ICT sector, and other high priority investment opportunities. These investment opportunities are typically identified by evaluating four specific sets of criteria: size and maturity of the local sector, local sector growth, market growth potential, and overall sector competitiveness.

Corona Virus Outbreak – THE EMBASSY OF LEBANON

Updated COVID-19 Travel Procedures as of April 11, 2021

On March 31, 2021, an official directive from the Ministry of Public Health was issued stating that fully-vaccinated passengers traveling to Lebanon are now exempt from the PCR testing requirements (Directive No. 1/465). This official directive was posted to our official website and social media.

However, certain airlines departing from the US are still implementing the previous procedures and have been turning away fully-vaccinated passengers who have not undergone PCR tests.

In light of this, and as a precautionary measure, we request that ALL travelers from the US, regardless of their vaccination status, undergo PCR tests before traveling to Lebanon, with no more than 96 hours from the time that their test result is issued to their time of arrival in Beirut until further notice. See below:

1. All airlines shall reduce the number of daily arriving passengers to Lebanon to 20% of the number of passengers who arrived to Lebanon during January 2020.

2. All travelers, with the exception of children under the age of 12, are required to take a PCR test in a lab certified by their countries’ local authorities and to present that test at their airline check-in counters. There should be no more than 96 hours from the time that you receive your TEST RESULT to the time of your ARRIVAL in Lebanon.

Passengers who do not have a negative PCR test result will not be allowed to board their flights.

3. All travelers, with the exception of children under the age of 12, those who have been fully vaccinated, UNIFIL, and members of diplomatic delegations acting in Lebanon, must also perform a PCR test upon their arrival in Beirut. All airlines shall collect $50 USD for every passenger who wishes to travel to Lebanon, which is the cost of the PCR test and other medical diagnostic measures that every passenger shall undergo upon arrival in Beirut.

4. All arriving passengers will be required to self-quarantine for 3 days at their place of residence or at a hotel of their choice.

5. Passengers who traveled out of Lebanon and will return within one week are exempt from the PCR test requirement in their countries of departure; however, they must still undergo a PCR test upon arrival in Beirut and must also undergo home quarantine until they are informed of their test result.

6. Passengers must complete an "Airport Tracking Registration Form" before departure at https://covid.pcm.gov.lb/impactmobile/curfew
This will generate an approval e-mail or SMS which must be presented upon arrival. This does not apply to passengers younger than 12 years.

7. Passengers must install the "CovidLebTrack" mobile app.
