Lebanon Suspends Issuance Of New Passports Due To Lack Of Funds

The Lebanese authorities stopped taking appointments for passport renewals for a lack of funds to pay the company contracted to issue new documents. 

“We have no alternative but to suspend these services because the increase in passport applications for migration reasons has depleted existing stockpiles,” the General Security Directorate stated, clarifying that citizens with pre-existing appointments are still eligible for new travel documents.

Nevertheless, these people will have to wait longer than usual to obtain their passports because of the increasing demand for document renewal requests, which has risen by ten times since 2020.
