Yes I realize this and have gotten a second passport in order to avoid problems. It's just the usage of the 2nd passport that I'm concerned about.
I'm having a similar question.
A friend and I are travelling to Israel via plane in autumn. We also want to visit Lebanon. We both will have two passports and want to use the second one for entering Lebanon. My friend was in Iran in the past and there is a stamp in her second passport. Will they allow us to enter Israel again? We know that having two passports can avoid problems, but will they control our second passport (with the stamps they "shouldn't see")? Will there be a security check because of the SECOND passport (with the stamp of Iran)?
I hope someone can help us!
You can enter Lebanon with any passport that does not bear any type of Israeli stamp. But also it should not bear any stamp or sign that you entered Jordan or Egypt from Israel. You should leave Jordan or Egypt with a different passport than the one entered in from Israel. You should return to Lebanon with the same passport you arrived Jordan or Egypt.
I have visited Israel before and my [first] US passport bears an Israeli stamp. I have now obtained a second US passport which I plan to use when I visit Lebanon. Is using my second passport enough to satisfy the requirements for entry into Lebanon, or will the fact that I have visited Israel before, even though I have NO Israeli stamp in my second passport, be a problem? Will I be asked at the immigration counter in Beirut if I have visited Israel before? What should my response be?
According to …state.gov/travel/… it says:
"Travelers holding passports that contain visas or entry/exit stamps for Israel will likely be refused entry into Lebanon and may be subject to arrest and imprisonment. Persons seeking entry into Lebanon who have previously traveled to Israel may face arrest and/or detention ***even if the travel documents they are currently using do not have Israeli stamps or visas***."
Those of you, if any, who had visited Lebanon successfully with the same situation as myself, can you please share your thoughts?
