Yes. For Syria Tourist Visa applications we will need your original passport.

You will need to provide:

  • Your original passport - valid for six months with at least two blank pages. It should not bear any Israeli stamps;
  • A letter from your employer on headed company paper, confirming that you are currently employed.
  • Two colour passport-sized photographs;
  • Two completed and signed Syria Visa application forms (per person);
  • A registered or recorded self-addressed envelope with exact postage.

The tourist visa is only valid for tourism or recreational purposes in Syria.

Nationals of all countries need a visa to visit Syria. The only exceptions are passport holders from the following countries: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, UAE and Yemen.

The processing time for British residents is 5 working days, after receipt of the application. The processing time for Irish residents is 10 working days, after receipt of the application.

There are both single and multiple-entry tourist visas options for Syria.

A single-entry tourist visa will give you three months to travel in Syria. A multiple-entry tourist visa will give you six months to travel in Syria.

Irish passport holders can get a visa upon arrival in Syria and stay there on 14 days. They just need to bring a passport size picture with them.

At Visa First we do everything we can to make sure you receive the best possible service. If you feel that we have not achieved this goal we have set up a complaints handling process:

Complaints Process:
  1. Where an official complaint is received by Visa First, the company will record the nature of the complaint and issue an acknowledgement email to the client within 5 business days of receiving the complaint. The acknowledgement will provide the client with the contact name who is responsible for dealing with the complaint. The official complaint must be made by email (you may also write, although this will slow down the process), and confirm that the client wishes to enter this process. Please email your complaint to complaints@visafirst.com
  2. Visa First will investigate the complaint as swiftly as possible and where applicable, the complainant will receive a regular written update on the progress of the investigation at intervals of not more than 20 business days.
  3. Visa First will try to resolve the complaint within 40 business days of having received the complaint. If the complaint cannot be resolved within 40 business days, the Firm will write to the complainant notifying them of the anticipated timeframe for the conclusion of the investigation.
  4. Within 5 business days of the conclusion of the investigation of the complaint, Visa First will issue a resolution letter detailing the outcome of the investigation. This letter will include, if applicable, an explanation of the terms of any offer that the company is prepared to make in settlement of the complaint.
