Students should plan on arriving in Lebanon at least one or two days before the beginning of classes for orientation. Transportation for arrival and departure between Beirut International Airport and LAU-Beirut is provided to SINARC students (residing at LAU dorms only) free of charge.
Non-Lebanese citizens are required to obtain a three-month tourist visa.
U.S. citizens and most European citizens can obtain visas at the Beirut International Airport for $35 or L.L. 50,000. Please be aware that visas purchased at the airport must be paid for in cash. (U.S. dollars are acceptable.) Credit cards are not acceptable for purchase of visas at the airport. Visas can also be obtained in advance through the Lebanese Consulates in the countries of origin. Citizens of countries other than the U.S. should check with their embassies for information concerning visas to Lebanon
