Ongoing work for a new fast-track passport control project has caused delays and congestion at Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport (BEY) as of mid-April. Airport officials indicated on Friday, April 12, that the number of operational security counters had been reduced to accommodate the construction of more fast-track lanes. The project, expected to continue through May 30, aims to ease congestion for travelers at the airport's main terminal by adding additional designated passport control lanes for first- and business-class travelers. Delays and congestion are to be expected throughout the anticipated project period.

Advice

Individuals traveling via BEY are advised to expect crowded conditions and budget extra time when traveling through Beirut.
