Advice for Swiss nationals and relatives

Swiss nationals in Lebanon who wish to leave the country should contact the Swiss embassy in Beirut on
01 324 129.

Those concerned about friends and/or relatives staying in the region should contact the foreign ministry hotline in Switzerland from 8am to 9pm, including Saturdays and Sundays, by dialling:
+41 31 325 33 33.

The Swiss foreign ministry urges people not to try to contact the Swiss embassy in Beirut from Switzerland, because the lines are reserved for people who are in the country and need help.
