The FCO advise against all but essential travel to:
Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Lebanon. You should be vigilant at all times, avoid crowds and crowded places and follow the advice of the Lebanese authorities. See Terrorism
You should be particularly vigilant at this time following the Lebanese Army’s announcement on 19 August that it has launched an operation to remove Daesh extremists from Lebanon’s north east region. Daesh and other extremists may attempt retaliatory attacks throughout Lebanon.
The security situation in parts of Lebanon can deteriorate quickly. There is potential for further violence, which could restrict departure options. The ability of the British government to provide assistance with departures may be limited. Keep up to date with developments, be vigilant, follow local advice and avoid any protests or demonstrations. Roads can become blocked due to protests. See Political situation
There’s a heightened risk of terrorism against aviation. Additional security measures may apply to flights departing from Lebanon to the UK. You should co-operate fully with security officials. For more information about how this may affect your flight, including if you’re transiting through Lebanon on the way to the UK, read this guidance page and contact your airline or travel company if you have further questions.
You should regularly monitor local and international media and this travel advice.
You can contact the emergency services by calling 112.
If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.
The Overseas Business Risk service offers information and advice for British companies operating overseas on how to manage political, economic, and business security-related risks.
Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
