All expatriates working in Lebanon must have a work permit and a residence permit. Such permits may be issued only at the request of an employer.

Social Security in Lebanon

Contributions to the social security scheme are calculated as percentages of monthly salaries and wages including overtime, gratuities and fringe benefits. For the sickness and maternity and family allowance schemes, the maximum amounts on which contributions are calculated are LL 2,500,000 and LL 1,500,000, respectively.

For the sickness and maternity scheme, the contribution rates are 7% for employers and 2% for employees. Only employers make contributions to the family allowances and end-of-service indemnity schemes. The contribution rates are 6% and 8.5%, respectively.

Non-Lebanese employees need not be registered with the Social Security NationaI Fund if their contracts are signed outside Lebanon and if they can prove that they enjoy soda I security benefits in their home country similar to the benefits granted in Lebanon.
