Passports

 Starting June 1st, 2011 and at the request of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and after the Lebanese authorities were informed that more than thirty countries are now reluctant to grant visas or renewing residency permits for holders of Lebanese burgundy passports, for these reasons we ask our Lebanese citizens to apply through our Consulate Office for obtaining a new passport  issued exclusively by the Directorate of General Security in Lebanon.

Applications for new passports will be sent to Lebanon by diplomatic pouch and returned in the same way.

Getting a new passport will take at least three months from the date of submission of the application.

 

A DHL service is available for a quicker process.


For more information you can call the Consulate office @902-700 6768
