  • Scanned copy of passport’s information pages in JPG format, with a minimum validity of six months.
  • Recent passport-sized personal photo with white background.
  • Information list.

The e-visa application process typically takes 5 working days for travelers from Europe, Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Russia, and other select nationalities. However, the processing time may be longer for applicants from certain other nationalities.

Once your e-visa is approved, you will receive the document electronically. Simply print it out and present it to the Immigration Officer upon arrival at the designated border crossing. Upon arrival, you will be issued a 15-day visa stamp in your passport, instead of a separate sticker.

Visa fees should be paid in cash, according to the current fees listed below, taking into account that visa fees and guidelines are subject to change without prior notice, so be sure to check the latest information before your trip.

Travel Advice:

  • It is crucial to emphasize that the Syrian authorities have strict regulations regarding previous travel to Israel and self-ruled territories. If, while obtaining your visa on arrival, border officials discover any indications in your passport that raise suspicions of prior visits to Israel, your entry will be unequivocally refused.
  • These restrictions apply not only to passports containing visas or entry/exit stamps to Israel and self-ruled territories, but also to entry stamps from specific border crossings with Israel from neighbouring countries such as Jordan or Egypt that you may have recently travelled through. As a result, if such stamps are present, the immigration officials will deny entry immediately.
  • The Syrian government strictly enforces these restrictions, and in order to ensure a smooth entry into the country, travelers must be mindful of their travel history. This entails understanding the significance of their passport stamps and planning their itineraries in the region accordingly. The objective is to avoid any complications that may arise from any perceived association with Israel during your entry process.

Entry/exit stamps from the below land border crossings should be avoided to avoid being refused entry to Syria.

  • Taba
  • Nitzana
