    ‘Fees are solely collected in LBP’ confirms Lebanon’s General Security

    In an issued statement by the Lebanese General Security on Saturday, it denied the circulated news by certain social networking sites that the General Security officers at Beirut Airport are collecting the entrance fees into the country in US dollars, affirming that all dues are collected in Lebanese pounds only, in accordance with the applicable laws.


    “As for passengers carrying foreign currency, they must exchange it at the accredited bank for this purpose at Beirut Airport in implementation of an organized contract between this bank and the General Directorate of Civil Aviation, which allowed it cash exchange exclusivity. Consequently, neither the General Security nor any of its personnel the airport have anything to do with this matter,” the statement underlined.
