Deadline for Registration of Palestinian and Syrian Newborns Extended in Lebanon

The Lebanese Directorate-General of Personal Status announced its decision to stretch the time-limit set for the registration of Palestinian and Syrian newborns born in Syria.

The decision figured in Circular No. 112 sent to the Lebanese Foreign Ministry and the local municipalities.

The circular called on heads of governorate departments and foreigners’ affairs departments in Beirut to register concerned newborns aged above one year and who were born between February 9, 2018 and February 09, 2019.

Obtaining birth/death certificates and identity documents by Palestinians from Syria in Lebanon is far from being a trouble-free process.

In recent reports, AGPS said the number of Palestinians who fled war-torn Syria to Lebanon has dramatically shrunk back over the past few years.

The decrease has been attributed to the mistreatment and crackdowns perpetrated against the refugees in the Lebanese territories, where they have also been denied the right to legal visas, refugee documents, safe accommodation, basic services, relief assistance, free education and healthcare, and access to the local labor market.

A decision issued by the Lebanese authorities in early May 2014 denied the Palestinians of Syria the right to freely enter the Lebanese territories, in an attempt to rein in refugee influx from Syria.
