In the wake of the blast that decimated Lebanon’s capital, French authorities announced that they will resume issuing visas to Lebanese people “out of solidarity”.
According to a statement released by the French Foreign Ministry: “Following the explosions in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020, France has decided to resume exceptionally the processing and issuance of visas for the benefit of Lebanese nationals residing in Lebanon, without any restriction other than the usual conditions for entry, and to allow their entry into its territory”.
French authorities had originally halted visa proceedings in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“People aged eleven or more coming from Lebanon, a country where the virus is actively circulating, will have to undergo a PCR test upon their arrival in France,” and if the they were tested positive, they will have to isolate themselves for two weeks.
