We recommend all Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon who wish to obtain Travel Documents, to present their applications at least ten weeks before the expiry date of their Travel Documents. These applications are regularly sent to Lebanon by the diplomatic pouch.

Express Mail Service: The General Directorate of the Lebanese General Security has authorized the DHL's FastTrack Service to transport the passports' applications in a fast way. This service is optional; it is at the expense of the person concerned and it is available by visiting the following website:

Issuance of a new Travel Document for Palestinian refugees:
