Lebanon - Country Commercial Guide
Trade Barriers

Includes the barriers (tariff and non-tariff) that U.S. companies face when exporting to this country

Last published date: 2020-09-29

Barriers to trade affect less than one percent of Lebanon’s import/export goods.  However, numerous Lebanese government agencies may impose licensing requirements such as technical, veterinary, or phyto-sanitary (plant health) certificates.  A limited number of goods (e.g., weapons) are subject to more than one trade measure.  All goods subject to import and export prohibitions could also be prohibited from transiting Lebanon.  To determine whether a specific product is subject to non-tariff barriers, consult the Lebanese Customs Administration’s website.
