Living and Working Conditions:

Lebanon continues to host the highest number of refugees per capita and per square kilometre in the world. As of 28 February 2023, there are 820,160 refugees and asylum seekers registered with UNHCR in Lebanon, including 808,088 Syrian refugees and 12,072 refugees and asylum seekers of other nationalities. The Government of Lebanon estimates that there are 1.5 million displaced Syrians living in Lebanon. Refugees live across nearly all municipalities in Lebanon in both within urban and rural areas, as well as in informal tented settlements. Since 2021, the Vulnerability Assessment for Syrian Refugees (VASyR) indicates that 9 out of 10 Syrian refugees are living in extreme poverty, even with assistance, up from 55% in 2019.

UNHCR co-leads with UNDP and the Government of Lebanon the Lebanon Crisis Response Plan (LCRP), a joint, multi-year plan between the Government of Lebanon and 126 international and national partners developed to assist more than 3.2 million crisis-affected people living in Lebanon, including displaced Syrians, Palestinian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese host communities. The LCRP appeal for 2023 is $3.34 billion.

Compounding the refugee situation is the unprecedented economic and financial crises that Lebanon is facing, which have contributed to a substantial deterioration of the socio-economic situation since 2019 and affected everyone, including refugees and Lebanese people.

Deterioration of basic support services is affecting the overall living conditions across the country. The provision of reliable electricity supply is a major challenge across the country. While many residential buildings have generator-based back-up systems, due to diesel shortages and increased fuel prices, electricity cuts of 6 to 20 hours per day persist. The cost of reliable electricity supply has increased significantly and can cost up to USD 1,000 per month. Staff also face shortages of medical supplies, including medication, and limited availability of medical specialists. Due to the collapse of the banking sector, many international staff are not using local banks for their finances and relying more on international bank accounts or financial service companies to make transfers, incurring high service fees.

Anti-government protests have been ongoing since October 2019. It is assessed that protests will continue at the same pace with roadblocks and increased violence, and this may also result in an increase of theft and carjacking. UN staff in Lebanon are considered potential targets of crime. There is also increasing risk of terror threats. Relations remain tense between Lebanon and Israel, and the countries are technically still at war with one another; however, the risk of an armed conflict remains very low.

UNHCR in Lebanon has around 600 staff across offices in in Beirut and Tyre (classified by ICSC in 2022 as ‘C’ family duty stations), as well in Tripoli, Qobayat, and Zahle (classified as category ‘B’ family duty stations). New hardship revision of duty stations in Lebanon is planned by ICSC for the end of 2022.

The timely issuing of the entry visas and residence permits remains a challenge for UNHCR in Lebanon, which may delay the staff member's assignment process, including for their dependents. Even though UN personnel can visit Lebanon using a UNLP and will receive a 6-month visa upon arrival, it is imperative that staff arriving from abroad to take up assignment in Lebanon receive the applicable entry visa at the Lebanese Embassy/Presentation closest to the point of their departure. The residency permit process can be only initiated when for the staff and their dependents are able to secure Lebanese entry visa on their national passports.  Preapproval process of the Lebanese entry visa depends on the approval granted by the MFA and take 4-5 weeks to obtain.
