All passengers arriving in Lebanon, with the exception of children under 12 years age and United Nations Interim Force In Lebanon, must make a prepayment of USD 30 by credit card and this must be done exclusively through the above electronic platform in order to obtain a MOPH PASS, which will allow them to do a PCR test upon arrival at Beirut Rafik Hariri Airport.
