Visa extensions for Lebanese visiting Sweden

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 visas would be extended for a maximum of three months, the board said, noting that the extensions would not be automatic and Lebanese citizens would have to apply at Migration Board offices.

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