US Embassy In Beirut Terminates Authorized Departure Status
The US State Department has updated the departure status for family members of US government personnel and certain non-emergency personnel of the US Embassy in Beirut.
The US State Department announced on its website that “US Embassy Beirut is no longer on authorized departure status” and that the Embassy “has returned to normal staffing and presence.”
However, it’s important to note that this update specifically pertains to the Embassy and its staff. The travel advisory for Lebanon remains at Level 4, “recommending that US citizens do not travel to Lebanon due to crime, terrorism, armed conflict, civil unrest, kidnapping, and Embassy Beirut’s limited capacity to provide support to US citizens.”
