STAYING LEGAL IN LEBANON

Now that you are here, it is important for you to note that if you are staying in Lebanon for longer than the duration of your visa, you must apply in person for a one-year student residence permit after your arrival and before your visa expires in order to maintain your legal status in Lebanon.
