Hi I am a German citizen. I was born outside German but lived in German over 15 years. Hence I got the passport. It is my only passport. My birth parents are of Lebanese decent. They have lebanese Identifation cards but don't have lebanese passports. Is it illegal if I acquire a lebanese id card. Just for the purposes of residing in Lebanon without a visa.

No i dont want the lebanese citizenship and have no interest in acquiring it. I just want to get the lebanese ID card only. My family renounced the Lebanese citizenship in the 80s when they became German - but they retained only their lebanese ID cards.Question:1. Are they allowed to have Lebanese ID cards? Is this a conflict with the German Law?2. Am i allowed to have a Lebanese ID card only (NO PASSPORT).
Moreover the purpose of the lebanese ID is only for idnetification purposes in Lebanon (i cant walk around with my passport) and also for other forms of domestic execution (such as bank accounts, etc)In Lebanon, since i am orginally lebanese decent, the lebanese id is granted without attaining citizenship.

Ok. Thanks. If you dont mind i would like to ask another question.My husband and i got married in Cyprus (civil marriage) on my marriage certificate it say.Husband: Lebanese (states his passport number)Wife: German Passprot/Lebanese ID. I wanted to just use my German passport however due to the new passport system (number & letters) the computer in cyprus wouldnt take my passport number. As a result the clerk there had to write on the marriage certificate. German passport, lebanese ID (and put down my lebanese id number)I would like to now register my marriage in the German Embassy. As i am now pregnant and want my child to have the nationality.However, i am afraid i will face legal complications to the German/Lebanese nationality written on my marriage certificate.Can you please advise. I would be more than happy to consult with you directly through your office and send you a copy of my marriage certificate.
Dear Customer, thank you for replying this is a different question altogether.Would you please be so kind to accept tzhe answer I have given about the Lebanese ID first and then aks the new question in a new threadThanks
