Travel & Shipment
For shipment of belongings, please contact our agent, LEVANT EXPRESS. Once your shipment is in Beirut, the agency will call us to proceed with clearance. We recommend that you inquire about the time it would take to ship by plane and then plan on having your stuff here a couple of days before you arrive in order to cut down on storage fees. Otherwise, you could plan on having your shipment arrive after you settle down. This way you don't have to pay for storage provided of course that you bring along in a suitcase or two your basic stuff to sustain you before the large package arrives.

Please note that your shipment will remain at the airport for clearance and will not be delivered to IC until you arrive to Beirut airport. IC will reimburse you up to the amount specified in your contract. Please follow the shipping guidelines regarding packing and labeling of your personal belongings. The shipping company will send you a quotation once they receive from you the approximate cargo details (i.e., pick-up location, number of boxes, weight, and volume). The cost of clearance and delivery in Beirut will be absorbed by IC and is excluded from the shipping subsidy.
If you're shipping your belongings on your own, you can send your shipment to the following address:

- You may choose to book your flight early but please wait until you receive the work visa before you confirm the reservation (not before mid-July).
- IC will pay for a one-way excursion fare air transportation actually flown to Beirut not to exceed the cost of the most direct route from the employee’s Home of Record to Beirut.
- Keep in mind that you report to duty beginning September so make sure your arrival to Lebanon is NOT before the last week of August as the school will be closed and employees will be on summer vacation.
- If you are coming from the United States, please book with NON-American airlines.
