Turkish Embassy in Beirut

Ambassador's Message

My Dear Citizens, Dear Lebanese nationals, Distinguished guests,


Welcome to the website of the Turkish Embassy in Beirut. Our website aims at providing information on Turkey, Turkish-Lebanese relations and the services of the Embassy.

Turkey and Lebanon are two brotherly countries, who share the same history, geography and culture. 

Relations between Turkey and Lebanon took a new dimension with the removal of visas in 2010. Only last year 160.000 Lebanese visited Turkey.
I believe people to people contacts will increase in the years to come.

I am also glad to note that economic and trade relations between Turkey and Lebanon have been increasing. Bilateral trade volume was 850 million dollars in 2014 which ranks Turkey as the 6th commercial partner of Lebanon.

In executing my functions as the Ambassador of Turkey in this beautiful country, my top priority will be to further strengthen and deepen our bilateral relations, to further reinforce strong ties of friendship between our peoples, to explore new areas of cooperation as well as expand and consolidate economic relations and commercial exchanges between our countries, to promote a better understanding of Turkey and its culture and for the Embassy to effectively serve all Turkish citizens in Lebanon.

I firmly believe that the future holds a great promise and potential for deepening Turkish-Lebanese cooperation in many areas such as commerce, investment, tourism and culture.

In order to be able to give you a better service and making use of the advances of the current technology, our website and our Facebook and Twitter pages are at your service. 

We hope that your visit to our website will be useful. Your comments and feedback are most welcome.

Sincerely,


Çağatay Erciyes
Ambassador
