Import Tariffs
Last published date:

More than 83 percent of imported goods are subject to duties of at most five percent.  The Lebanese Customs Administration’s m at www.customs.gov.lb provides a searchable database that displays import duties by tariff number.

With minor exceptions, European goods are exempted from customs fees in accordance with the European Mediterranean Association Agreement and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) agreement, effective March 1, 2015.  In addition, goods from several Arab countries are also exempted from customs fees in accordance with the Greater Arab Free Trade Area (GAFTA) Agreement.  Produce traders have reported that the Ministry of Agriculture does not grant import licenses for fruit.

To look up duties and taxes, use the Customs Info Database tariff look-up tool, available on trade.gov (free registration required).
