Money and easy conversion

Most stores, supermarkets and restaurants accept payment in debit card or credit card. They will always ask you if you prefer the amount to be take out in “dollars or Lebanese” (“dolar aw lebnene” in Arabic). This is because both currencies can be used in Lebanon. The following is a table that you can study or memorize for quick conversion between dollars and Lebanese.

1,500 LL = $1.00; 7,500 LL = $5.00; 15,000 LL = $10.00; 30,000 LL = $20.00; 75,000 LL = $50.00; 150,000 LL = $100.00


It is not uncommon to mix currency as well, so there’s no need to feel shy about handing a store clerk $20.00 and 10,000 LL for an item that costs 40,000 LL. On an important side note, when you set up your Lebanese bank account, you will be asked if you want your account in US dollars or Lebanese Pounds. The easiest way to decide is by going with whatever currency your employer pays you in, but depending on your individual case there may be other factors to consider. In the end, it is completely your choice—just keep in mind that there is typically a fee for any money conversions that go through the bank. restaurants.
