The political and security situation in Lebanon is quite complex and has proven volatile on numerous occasions. A national unity government has been formed in January 2019 after months of vacancy. Domestic tensions remain considerable and despite a relative stability, risks of rapid escalation and context deterioration are non-negligible. Reflective of divisions within the Lebanese society and the subsequent political landscape, the situation of Syrian refugees is becoming increasingly precarious.

International tensions are also a risk factor to consider, although the risk of an imminent conflict seems contained.

Overall, despite the tensions the security situation is currently good, and expats enjoy a high level of freedom. There is – at the time of writing – no curfew in place on the Lebanon mission and international staff can move around with very limited restrictions. There are however some no-go areas as well as some areas requiring prior validation by the security team.



Expatriates are hosted in Zahle’s guesthouse. As one of the Bekaa’s biggest cities, Zahle hosts many cafes and restaurants, a cinema and sports facilities. The guesthouse is located inside the city, at walking distance from shops and restaurants. Facilities include 24/7 electricity, 24/7 wifi, air conditioning and central heating system.
