On a visa site which gives good visa information it says the following about the Cambodia visa on arrival for a Lebanon passport.

Passport (must be valid 6 months after date of arrival) and
visa required.

However, visa can be obtained on arrival, if coming for:
- touristic purposes for a stay of max. 30 days.
Fee: USD 20.- and one passport photo;
- business purposes for a stay of max. 30 days.
Fee: USD 25.- and 1 passport photo.
Extension of stay is possible. Fee: see For details, click here .

Visitor must hold:
- documents required for next destination; and
- sufficient funds to cover stay.
Travel on a one-way ticket is allowed.

Doesn't your passport have the official language of Lebanon but next to it (on the photo page) it has/whatever in English. The foreign passports I have seen have all has the name etc headings in the local language plus the english version of the word.

India visas are valid for 6 months from the date of issue, so if you visit to India is only a brief one, you could apply a few months in advance and by the time you were there it'd still be valid. That will have to be applied for in advance not when you get to the airport or border. It says on the Indian consulate in New York website that you can apply at the consulate using a foreign passport, but the fees are different (cheaper for foreigners than for US citizens!)

Vietnam visas are issued for the set arrival date you give and are valid for 30 days after that arrival date, so you can't say you will arrive on 30th July and turn up on 29th July and get in, but if you turned up on the 31st July it'd be fine. They also have to be applied for in advance because they are not generally issued on arrival.

For the Nepal visa, the site says the following for a Lebanon passport: Tourist visa can be issued on arrival for a stay of:
- 60 days, fee: USD 30.-;
- max. 150 days, multiple entry, fee: USD 80.-.
