Visa requirements for Canadians

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports can purchase a visa upon arrival (VOA) in the country at the first airport or land border crossing point. There is no application process.

Visa requirements for Foreigners

You must apply directly to the embassy or high commission for this visa. No third party can assist.


Canadian citizens can obtain an entry visa-on-arrival (VOA) at Beirut International Airport or any other port of entry provided there is no Israeli visa or seal on their passport. The usual price, which does change, is US$25.
