This is a list of ambassadors of the United States and other Heads of Mission to Lebanon.

On September 6, 1989, all United States personnel were withdrawn from Beirut during unrest resulting from there being no clear successor to President Amin Gemayel. Ambassador Ryan C. Crocker did not formally present his credentials until 1990 to Rene Moawad.
