Lebanon is a source and destination country for children victims of trafficking for sexual purposes, as well as a transit point for Eastern European children subjected to sex trafficking in other Middle Eastern countries. Trafficking of children for sexual purposes in Lebanon is sometimes carried out under the guise of child marriages.

Child marriage appears to be the prevailing form of commercial sexual exploitation of children in Lebanon.

Exploitation of children for prostitution is reportedly taking place in Lebanon especially among the most vulnerable categories such as Syrian refugees and street children.
