Syria Visa – How To Get A Syrian Visa

Does Syria sound like your next destination for travel? A Syria visa is necessary for business and tourism purposes. Syria offers single entry visas, as well as double entry visas for business and tourism purposes. Travelers that stay more than 15 days in Syria will need to register with the Syrian Immigration officials by or before the 15th day. Also, your passport should be valid and up to date before you go on your trip to Syria. We recommend that your passport have a minimum of 6 months validity on it after your planned departure from Syria, as well as a minimum of (2) blank visa pages to accommodate for any necessary visa stamps. If these requirements regarding your passport are not met, you may be denied entry. 

Syria Visa Requirements

For a tourist Syria visa, your documents should include a Syrian visa application form, an original, sign United States passport, (2) approved passport photographs, a program of your trip and make sure that there are not any traces of travel to Israel prior to traveling to Syria, as this can cause complications.

For a business Syria visa, your documents should include everything necessary in order to obtain a tourist visa with the addition of a business invitation. A business invitation should be written on the company letterhead, and addressed to “The Consulate of Syria, Visa Section.” The business invitation should have an introduction of the applicant, the nature of the business being conducted, and the type of visa along with desired validity length.
