Ikhraj Qayd إخراج قيد

Prior to starting a new Ikhraj Qayd (إخراج قيد ) request, Applicants are required to check the Jurisdiction guidelines in order to verify whether their state of residence falls under the Lebanese Embassy’s jurisdiction (Washington D.C), or under its affiliated Consulates General ( Los Angeles, Detroit or New York).  

Note: This request is directed towards applicants in pursuit of the civil bulletin form (إخراج قيد) ONLY, not the Lebanese ID card (بطاقة الهوية). Note:  the request for a Lebanese ID card must be fulfilled in Lebanon as the Embassy of Lebanon in Washington D.C does not process them. Furthermore, clients are encouraged to apply for the civil bulletin form (إخراج قيد) directly from Lebanon as well due to their quick turnaround.

 In order to process a new Ikhraj Qyad request, applicants are requested to send an email to ramif@lebanonembassyus.org with a copy of an old family/individual ikhraj kayd or Lebanese identification card and a copy of the passport if available. Address in the U.S and Phone number are required.

 N:B: Please note that it will take up to 3 Months for the request to be completed. Once the embassy receives the Ikhraj Qayd from Lebanon, clients are requested to mail in one large empty, stamped, self-addressed envelope from USPS or Fedex along with a $20 money order/cashier check payable to the embassy of Lebanon covering the translation of the Ikhraj Qayd if needed. Clients are advised to keep a copy of their return envelopes, as the embassy is not responsible for any lost return mail (in person applicants are exempt from this step).
