Update: I added four more visa-free destinations at the end following some research and tips from readers (thank you for that!). Happy travels!
Late last year, I challenged myself to do a year of traveling only to countries where the Lebanese are not required to have a visa in advance. Although the list of said countries is quite short, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy some of the most beautiful places in the world.
I haven’t made it to every country on the list of visa free access, but here are some pictures of places that are only a plane ride away for Lebanese citizens.
You can also follow me on Instagram (@gmr83) for more pictures from my travels.
I also recommend that you always check visa regulations as they are always changing. I use this useful Emirates Airline portal before traveling.
- Sri Lanka (Note: technically you need a visa but it can be easily obtained online without any documents)
- East Timor
Hello everyone, today we woke up very early to vist the Khor Virap Monastery, where Christianity in Armenia began right after St. Gregory (who was imprisoned there for 13 years) healed the King Trdad III from a disease in the year 301… a historical event after which Armenia officially became the first Christian nation in the world. From this significant location, we can also see Mount Ararat, a dormant, snow-capped volcano mentioned in the Book of Genesis as the Mount where Noah's Ark landed.
