"Αvoid all travel to Lebanon," Cyprus MFA says in travel advice

Cyprus’ Foreign Ministry advises Cypriot nationals with an updated travel advice to avoid all travel to Lebanon.

In a Travel Advice issued on 29 October, the Ministry said it is closely monitoring the situation in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, and security incidents taking place in south Lebanon, which could deteriorate throughout the country without prior warning.

Moreover, Cypriot citizens in Lebanon “are advised to avoid all gatherings and demonstrations, remain vigilant and follow the instructions of local authorities. They are also advised to follow closely the developments and information from the international and local media, avoid unnecessary movements and apply maximum security measures”.

Cypriot citizens are also advised to register, if they so wish, on the online registration platform for Cypriots abroad Connect2CY.

In case of emergency Cypriot citizens are requested to contact:
