Lebanon Insurance

It’s important to have a comprehensive Lebanon insurance plan in place before you go. The political situation is unstable and security has deteriorated quickly in the past. Visitors should keep themselves up to date with developments and be aware that standard insurance in Lebanon may not provide sufficient cover, particularly for high-risk occupations, high-risk areas or extended residency.

Potential risks in Lebanon

The large explosion in the port area of Beirut in August 2020 precipitated a prolonged period of political and economic crisis in the country, which still persists today, making this a challenging country to do business in.

There are, however, many opportunities for trade; we advise our clients to consider Trade and Political Risk insurance that will provide protection from confiscation or loss of earnings due to future changes in government or legislation that may adversely affect business. 

Although health facilities can be extremely good, they can also be expensive and you should have comprehensive international Medical insurance in Lebanon. Terrorist attacks are always a risk. Terrorist attacks such as car bombings and kidnappings are a real threat and western nationals and interests are a known target. Provision for war and terrorism and kidnap and ransom should also be considered. 

Whatever brings you here, we can create tailored insurance to protect your people, your property and your assets. We can also cover your business liabilities and help you to meet any contractual requirements you may have.
