If your passport is lost while in the country, you should report the matter to the Lebanese police to obtain a case number. With this case number, you can then proceed to the British Embassy to apply for either a temporary passport (emergency travel document UK contact number) or a new passport, depending on your situation. The temporary passport will enable you to exit the country, whereas if you reside in Lebanon, you will have to wait for a new passport. Once you have a new passport, you will need to transfer your old Lebanese visa to the new one. Additionally see the track passport application as well as the British passport renewal online.
If you plan to get married in Lebanon, you will require a letter from the Embassy to confirm your single status. To obtain this letter, you must submit your original documents such as divorce decree or death certificate of your previous spouse. The letter will need to be verified by the Lebanese government, translated and certified before you can register your marriage with the provided documents. This process typically takes several days.
