Can Americans get a visa for Syria?

As of March 2023, the Syrian government announced Americans are welcomed to visit Syria and began reissuing visas. You can read more about this announcement here.

We can apply for US nationals or anyone born in the US. However, your LOI approval is not guaranteed. Once we have confirmed your LOI is approved you may then book your travel arrangements.

If I have visited Israel can I still visit Syria?

If there is any evidence you have visited Israel your Syrian visa may be rejected on arrival. So be sure your passport does not include the following:

– Exit stamps from Egyptian or Jordanian borders with Israel

– Israeli entry or exit permit paper slip

– Old flight tickets to Israel

– Baggage tags or barcodes from Israeli airport

Ensure you do not have Israeli or Palestinian souvenirs and books on you whilst travelling into Syria, as well as any posts on your social media about your trip to Israel or Palestine. We cannot take Israelis on tour.
