Preparing for Your Trip?

Weather

The average temperature for September in Lebanon is 29°C (83°F) during the day, and 18°C (64°F) at night. You might need a thin jacket when on an outing in the mountainside where the temperature can be a bit cooler.

Time Zone

Lebanon is in EEST time zone, 3 hours ahead of GMT in September.

Currency

Payments done in Lebanon now are cash based. You cannot access your foreign bank accounts through an ATM.  Kindly plan to carry with you in cash the amount that you expect to spend while in Lebanon.  The use of international credit cards is not recommended as the exchange rate is undervalued and you could suffer a significant overcharge.

LSESD can help you change money at the daily rate. We do not recommend exchanging money at the airport. The exchange rate is volatile, but you can check the market rate here for guidance. (You will most likely exchange at a slightly lower rate.)

Electricity

Lebanon uses 220V with a standard frequency of 50Hz. Most plugs have two circular prongs, as shown in the image below.
