The U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon is the head of the U.S. Mission to Lebanon, based in Beirut, Lebanon.

Michele Sisons, who arrived in February 2008 as charge d' affaires ad interim, was confirmed by the Senate in August and has been resident since then.

Incumbents

This list begins with the first diplomats accredited as full Ambassadors, rather than at a lower diplomatic rank. The Ambassadorship has been vacant at times, but charges d'affaires ad interim are not included. Career Foreign Service Officers are denoted as FSO. For security reasons after multiple attacks, the Embassy was closed in 1989-1990.
