US embassy warns its citizens in Lebanon

| Saturday 13 April 2024

Due to high tensions in the region, the security environment remains complex and can change quicky. We remind U.S. citizens of the continued need for caution and encourage them to monitor the news for breaking developments.

We recommend that U.S. citizens in Lebanon monitor Travel.State.Gov for alerts and the news closely for breaking developments that could affect internal security.

As advised in the Travel.State.Gov Lebanon Travel Advisory , U.S. citizens should avoid travel to the Lebanon-Israel border area, the Lebanon-Syria border area, and refugee settlements. In all parts of Lebanon, you should avoid demonstrations and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings or protests.

We also recommend that U.S. citizens enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive alerts and make it easier for us to locate you in an emergency.

Actions To Take:

Review your personal security plans.

Keep your cell phone charged in case of emergency.

Exercise caution, monitor the news closely for breaking developments that could affect internal security, and factor updated information into your travel plans and activities.

Have a contingency plan for emergencies and review the Traveler’s Checklist.
