    My 18 mature young college student daughter is ADAMENT about going to Lebanon. I am concerned
    about the travel warnings and she will be traveling alone to meet a friend who lives there in Beirut.
    Has anyone made travel there? What do I need to know about Visas and do we contact the embassy
    here in the US or in Lebanon? Thank You Mile Point Family!

    I'm trying to understand if this is a serious posting. IMHO, a thorough reading of the US State Department warning should discourage most would-be American travelers to Lebanon, see and carefully read it at the following link:

    FWIW, my barber is Lebanese-American, and had travelled to Lebanon to visit his family last year. He hasn't made plans for return so far for this year, due to the increasing dangers.

    I suppose technically she doesn't need your permission, but I would advise against it, as, I'm sure, much, if not all, of the MP community would.

    I like Lebanon and think there are some fabulous people + places to see there but I would NEVER let my 18 year-old daughter travel to a predominantly Muslim country solo - WOULD NOT BE HAPPENING
