We recommend all Lebanese who wish to obtain Lebanese passports, to present their applications at least three months before the expiry date of their passports. These applications are regularly sent to Lebanon by the diplomatic pouch.
Based on the circular of the General Directorate of Public Security and as of September 15, 2022, the Lebanese Embassy in London announces the following:
1- Stop receiving applications for biometric passports until further notice, the holder of a biometric passport applies for an electronic passport for a period of five years (Form 2003).
2- Stop receiving applications for electronic passports (model 2003) for a period of one year, and receiving these applications for a period of five years exclusively
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: https://fasttracklb.dhl.com

It is no longer possible to add a minor child to either parent's Lebanese passports. In the absence of an Individual Extract of Civil Status, the Embassy could eventually issue a "Laissez-Passer", valid for one year and for several trips for a new-born who should be already registered in the Embassy.

Conditions and requirements to obtain a new passport:

*   Fill out a Passport Application

*   The old Passport.

*   An Individual Extract of Civil Status which date of issuance does not exceed 10 years, or the original Lebanese ID card (new version).

*   The UK Residence Permit or Passport.

*   Two copies of all documents above mentioned.

*   Two recent colour photos with a white background (size length 4.3cm x width 3.5cm) showing full details of the face. The reproduction of an old photo is not accepted.

*   In case of loss/theft of the Lebanese passport, the holder should provide a police report and a copy of the lost/stolen passport, if available.

The presence of the applicant for a new passport at the Embassy is mandatory and the applicant needs to book an appointment via phone.

Both parents should be present in person at the Embassy and sign a consent letter, authorizing the minor (under eighteen years old) to obtain a passport.

Those who wish to add their professions on their passports should provide a certificate or an official card issued by a professional syndicate or by a Lebanese official institute.

In case of divorce, dissolution of marriage, abandonment or death, the legal guardian should present the valid tutelage in Lebanon in order to apply for a passport for a minor.

The Embassy informs (by phone or email) the new passport holder of the arrival of his passport by diplomatic bag/pouch from Beirut. The concerned person should either be present at the Embassy and bring his/her old passport in order to collect the new passport.

If the holder of a new passport does not collect his passport in one year, the Embassy will return the passport to the General Directorate of the General Security in Lebanon, Lebanese Passports Department.

Consular fees: (Cash payment or postal order)

         *   Five years: £215.00 (for Electronics passport)
