The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has changed its travel advice for Lebanon, stating that due to the improved security situation, they are no longer advising against all but essential travel to the country. However, they continue to advise against all travel to the Palestinian camps and against all but essential travel to Tripoli, as well as south of the Litani river. The relevant summary point now reads:

“Travel to some areas of Lebanon requires caution. We advise against all
travel to Palestinian camps and against all but essential travel to Tripoli,
as well as south of the Litani. Although the situation overall in Lebanon
is calm, it is fragile. On several occasions in recent years, the security
situation has deteriorated rapidly to the point where we have had to advise
against all travel. Anyone traveling to Lebanon should keep themselves well
informed and closely monitor political and security developments.”
