National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
There is a possibility of an increase in armed conflict that could affect wider areas of Lebanon. If the security situation in Lebanon deteriorates, it’s likely that Beirut airport would close, and you may be unable to leave for an extended period. Australians in Lebanon who wish to leave, should leave now while commercial flights remain available. If the security situation deteriorates and there is armed conflict, the Australian Government may not be able to assist you to leave in such circumstances. See our advice on ‘Armed conflict’ in ‘Safety’. Daily military action is occurring in southern Lebanon, including rocket and missile fire, as well as airstrikes. The situation could escalate quickly. This could affect your ability to move to safety. Avoid areas where military activity is ongoing. We continue to advise do not travel to Lebanon due to the volatile security situation and the risk of the security situation deteriorating further. Terrorist attacks could occur anytime and anywhere, including in Beirut. If you're an Australian citizen or permanent resident in Lebanon, you can register with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's crisis registration portal. See the 'Safety' section for details on how to register. Keep your registration details up to date so we can contact you. If you need emergency consular assistance, contact the Australian Government's Consular Emergency Centre on +61 2 6261 3305 (if you're overseas) or 1300 555 135 (in Australia).

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
