Temporary passport

Please note: At this time, the Lebanese Government does not recognize temporary passports, therefore only “Laissez-Passer” can be issued, allowing a return to Switzerland only via a direct flight.

In an emergency the Swiss representation responsible for your place of stay can prepare a provisional passport (emergency passport) on the spot with a minimum of delay. Information on provisional passports will be found on the following website:

Provisional Swiss passports

Do not hesitate to contact the appropriate Swiss representation if you are in need of a provisional passport.
