Reacquiring Lebanese Citizenship

I would like to inform you that the Lebanese pertinent authorities, pursuant to Law # 41 “Reacquiring the Lebanese Citizenship” dated November 24, 2015, has started taking applications from members of the Lebanese diaspora to reacquire the Lebanese citizenship.

The said Law stipulates that applications should be submitted before November 25, 2025.

Applications will be considered by a committee within the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities of Lebanon.

Applicants can appeal the decisions of the said committee within a month from the time they are legally notified of such decisions at the address they specified in their applications.

Persons eligible to apply should have their names or the names of their paternal ancestors, or male relatives on their father’s side, listed on the records of the census of 1921 – 1924, either residents or immigrants registers, and/or the records of the census of 1932, immigrants registers, available at the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities.

To apply:

At the Consular Section, you or your legal proxy should complete a reacquiring citizenship application and enclose:

1. Transcript of the above mentioned records of the census of 1921 – 1924, either residents or immigrants registers, and/or the records of the census of 1932, immigrants registers, listing your name or the names of your paternal ancestors, or male relatives on your father’s side.
2. Lebanese documents including civil status records (IDs, ikhraj kayd), wills, or national archives, etc… listing your name or the names of your paternal ancestors, or male relatives on your father’s side.

4. Parental consent form for minors and applicants under 18 signed by both parents or legal guardians, at the Consular Section or authenticated by a notary public, affirming their consent to the application.

Via certified mail, if you cannot get to the Consulate, complete and sign a reacquiring citizenship application in front of a notary public, and then send it to us along with:
