UK relaxes travel advice for some areas across Lebanon

Oct 03

In a press release by the British Embassy in Beirut, it said: 'The British Foreign and Commonwealth has revised its travel advice for Lebanon, reducing the areas to which we advise against travel for British citizens.'

A British Embassy spokesperson said: 'We have changed our travel advice in response to improvements to the general situation in the country and a reduction in incidents in recent years. However, we continue to warn citizens that terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks against sites in Lebanon, as well as a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals. We advise our citizens to remain vigilant and familiarise themselves with our travel advice before travelling. We value our partnership with the Lebanese security forces and will continue to work closely with them. Our travel advice is kept under constant review and restrictions may be reinstated if our assessment changes.'
