How to pay the processing fees:

  1. Temporary Residence Applications: Processing fees must be paid when the application is submitted. You may pay the processing fees at any branch of Bank Audi in Lebanon. The bank will in turn provide you with a receipt indicating the date and time to submit your application at the visa office.  The payment or a receipt indicating payment must be attached to the application form.  Refer to the fee schedule for current rates. Just before paying, check this webpage again for the up-to-date information.

  2. If you have relatives in Canada, they may issue a bank draft or a certified cheque drawn on a Canadian bank and send it to you in order to include it within your application package.  If you choose to take this option, please follow carefully the hereunder instructions on “Paying in Canadian dollars ($)”

Paying in Lebanese Pounds or US Dollars

Processing fees can be paid in Lebanese Pounds or US Dollars at any Bank Audi branch.

On your payment slip, please indicate the name of the applicant, a telephone number where the applicant can be reached, and the applicant’s date of birth. Then tick the box for the appropriate permit or visa and write the total amount due, using one only payment slip per application.

Please include the original bank receipt in your application whether you apply by courier service or in person. If you wish to apply in person, this receipt provides you with the time and date of your appointment for application.

Note: It is your responsibility to know for which service you are applying for and you should pay the exact amount in Lebanese Pounds or US dollars as listed in the fee schedule below. Audi Bank employees will not be able to advise you about Embassy services.

Processing fees are non-refundable regardless of the outcome of the application.
