SECURITY AND LIVING CONDITIONS
In Beirut, the guesthouses and the office are located in close-by buildings. The guesthouses are 3 bedroom apartments, fully furnished and comfortable. Vehicles are available for evening and week-end if you have a valid international driving license. Lebanon is a safe country you can discover by yourself. We also have guesthouses in Zahle and Tripoli, available on weekends. Beirut is a very modern city, where you can find all kind of restaurants, shops, international libraries, bars, cinemas, etc. All common goods and amenities are available on all bases.
Despite on-going internal and external tensions, Lebanon’s security situation is currently good. There is no curfew in place on the Lebanon mission and international staff can move around with little restrictions, except for some areas in Akkar and the Beqaa valley. Security measures could still be upgraded quickly depending on the context’s evolution
