Lebanon Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

Jul 27, 2006

This Travel Warning is being updated in light of the current situation in Lebanon. Due to ongoing security concerns in Lebanon, on July 27, the U.S. Embassy has been granted ordered departure status. Family members and non-emergency American employees have been ordered to depart Lebanon. Essential personnel will remain at the Embassy to facilitate vital political, humanitarian, and consular duties. The Department of State urges American citizens to avoid travel to Lebanon and Americans currently in Lebanon to leave. This supersedes the Travel Warning issued on July 19, 2006.

The Department of State is concerned for the personal safety of American citizens due to the hostilities in Lebanon. In light of the recent events in Lebanon and the resulting escalation in violence, including the closure of Beirut International Airport and the Port of Beirut, family members and non-emergency American employees of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut have been ordered to depart Lebanon. The Department of State urges private American citizens to leave Lebanon as well. The U.S. Embassy is monitoring the situation in Lebanon closely and is assisting American citizens to depart safely.

U.S. citizens who are in Lebanon despite this Travel Warning should exercise heightened caution when traveling in parts of the southern suburbs of Beirut, portions of the Bekaa Valley and areas south of the Litani River in South Lebanon. Hizballah maintains a strong presence in many of these areas, and there is the potential for action by other extremist groups in Tripoli.

Dangers posed by landmines and unexploded ordnance throughout south Lebanon are significant and also exist in other areas where civil war fighting was intense. Travelers should be aware of posted landmine warnings and strictly avoid all areas where landmines and unexploded ordnance may be present.

The Embassy is located in Awkar, near Antelias, Beirut, Lebanon. Public access hours for American citizens are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. However, American citizens who require emergency services outside of these hours may contact the Embassy by telephone at any time. The telephone numbers are (961-4) 542-600, 543-600, and fax 544-209. American citizens may register with the Embassy online by visiting https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs . Information on consular services and registration can also be found at http://lebanon.usembassy.gov/ or by phone at the above telephone numbers between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday local time.

Updated information on travel and security in Lebanon may be obtained from the Department of State by calling 1-888-407-4747 within the United States or, from overseas, 1-202-501-4444. Additional details can be found in the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for Lebanon, the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement, the Middle East and North Africa Public Announcement and the Travel Publication "A Safe Trip Abroad," all of which are available on the Department's Internet site at http://travel.state.gov.
