September 2022 UPDATE:
Free Visa on arrival for holders of iraqi passport.
Lebanon removed visa requirements for Iraqi citizens!
“A decision was issued to grant Iraqis who wish to come to Lebanon a FREE ENTRY and residence visa for a period of one month, extendable up to three months, for nationals coming for tourism".
Iraqi nationals were previously required to obtain a visa-on-arrival. They have also been removed from an article requiring them to possess two thousand US dollars in cash or cheque as a prerequisite for entering Lebanese territory.
