We calculate lepton flavor violating Z-->l(1)(+)l(2)(-) decay in the framework of the general two Higgs doublet model. In our calculations we use the constraints for the Yukawa couplings (xi) over bar (D)(N,taue) and (xi) over bar (D)(N,taumu) coming from the experimental result of the muon electric dipole moment and upper limit of BR(mu-->egamma). We observe that it is possible to reach the present experimental upper limits for the branching ratios of such Z decays in model III.
