Living in Lebanon

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Mar 07, 2024

Summary: People often describe life in Lebanon as vibrant and diverse. Expats love the country's rich culture, beautiful scenery, and delicious food. The cost of living for an expat in Lebanon is relatively low compared to other countries in the region. The average cost of living for an expat is around $1,000 per month. The population of Lebanon is estimated to be around 6.8 million people. The largest cities in Lebanon are Beirut, Tripoli, Sidon, and Tyre. The cons of living in Lebanon include the country's political instability, high unemployment rate, and lack of infrastructure. Additionally, the cost of living in Lebanon is rising due to inflation and the devaluation of the Lebanese pound.

What do I need to know about living in Lebanon?

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

"Before retiring in Lebanon, expats should be aware of the country's political and security situation. It is important to research the current situation and be aware of any potential risks. 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 research the healthcare system in Lebanon and make sure they have adequate health insurance coverage. Finally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs to ensure a smooth transition into their new home," commented one expat who made the move to Lebanon.
