Lebanese nationals who are currently visiting Sweden will be allowed to extend their visas after they expire, the Swedish Migration Board said on Thursday, citing the conflict in Lebanon.

The offer was also valid for permanent residents of Lebanon, even if they are not Lebanese citizens, it added.
