Syria Visa Post for Temporary and Permanent Applications Closed


Due to the ongoing violence in Syria, Citizenship and Immigration Canada announced the temporary closure of the Syrian Visa Post – the office responsible for temporary and permanent residency applications of people in Syria and neighboring countries. The Jordan visa office is now taking applications from Iraq, while Turkey is accepting applications from Iran. People in Syria can apply for temporary resident applications – temporary resident visa, work permit, study permits – at the Lebanon or Jordan embassy. “The situation in Syria is too volatile and we need to find a more permanent solution for processing applications in the area,” commented Minister Kenney. Syria will reopen and resume services to people in Syria as soon is it is safe to do so. To read more, go to: CIC Media Centre
