In a not very surprising – given the French President Macron’s latest promises to help Lebanese students in France – yet very welcome initiative given the current economic crisis that is plaguing the country, Campus France has sent pupils joining the French territory for the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year an email stipulating the possibility of receiving 500 euros of aid from the French Government if you fill ALL of the following conditions:

1- You are Lebanese.

2- You are a student recently affiliated with a French university.

3- You have joined France this year.


And given that you provide the following information by mail to before December 1, 2020:

1- Your first and last names, as well as the date of birth in the DD/MM/YYYY format in the subject field of the email.

2- A copy of your Lebanese passport.

3- A copy of the certificate issued by the French university you are affiliated with confirming your status as a student enrolled in their curriculum.

4- A copy of the RIB (RelevĂ© d’IdentitĂ© Bancaire) related to your French bank account.


This way, the 500 euros will compensate for the enrollment fees normally required from any student desiring to join a French university, and will be reimbursed once Campus France receives your details and replies back with a special certificate to present to the institution.


To note that starting November 11, every Lebanese citizen (11+ years of age) willing to visit France will have to provide a negative PCR test upon arrival, done within 72 hours, or else they will not be allowed in the country.
