LBP – Lebanese Pound


The payment processing of this currency is considered to be relatively standardised. However, the beneficiaries might be contacted by the beneficiary/correspondent bank to release the funds.

Currency Guidelines

Besides the standard information, the IBAN format is mandatory (see Appendix VI).

A clear reason / purpose of payment is recommended and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered as insufficient and can result in errors or delays.

Example: Payment of travel expenses – invoice n° 123456789

This currency has to include two decimal places of zero value (e.g. LBP 123.00)
