You’re Welcome But…

Welcome but...

  • Legally cross the Lebanese borders and register your details at the customs, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and the UNHCR.
  • Restrain from owning, smuggling or selling any kind of weaponry inside Lebanon.
  • Do not commit robberies, pickpocketing, or theft on scooters.
  • Respect the Lebanese laws when it comes to driving, parking, and littering.
  • Appreciate the Lebanese hospitality by respecting people who welcomed you in their area.
  • Your currency is not accepted in the Lebanese market. Make sure to convert it to Lebanese Lira or US Dollars.
  • You are free to work in all fields, and if qualified you should be paid the same wage as a Lebanese. And as long as your unscrupulous Lebanese employer is hiring you just to cut cost, you are not to blame.
  • Do not compare your situation with the Palestinians in Lebanon, at the end, both of you are prolonged visitors.
  • Blend with your surrounding, share your culture with Lebanese and vice versa.
  • Avoid taking part in political activities, rallies and protests related to Syria on the Lebanese territory.
  • Do not commit or take part in military or intel operations on Lebanese politicians and citizens inside Lebanon.
  • Do not interfere in the complicated Lebanese internal politics.
  • You might face hostilities from some Lebanese, who blame the Syrian regime for historical events that happened in Lebanon. Try to understand them, stay away from any provocation and inform the official Lebanese authorities.
  • Always keep in mind that your stay in Lebanon is temporary and your only wish is to return to your country as soon as the conflict ends.
