Moving to Lebanon

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Summary: Many expats and digital nomads move to Lebanon for its vibrant culture, stunning scenery, and unique cuisine. Additionally, the country offers a low cost of living and a great climate. People can find a place to live in Lebanon by searching online for rental properties, or by asking friends and family for recommendations.

What do I need to know before moving to Lebanon?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Lebanon, they said:

"Before moving to Lebanon, expats should be aware of the current political and security situation in the country. It is important to research the local laws and customs, and to familiarize oneself with the language, as English is not widely spoken. Expats should also be aware of the cost of living in Lebanon, as it is generally higher than in other countries in the region. Additionally, expats should be aware of the cultural differences between Lebanon and their home country, and be prepared to adjust to a new way of life. Finally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before moving to Lebanon," commented one expat who made the move to Lebanon.
