Due to Continuing Violence in Syria, Government Closes Visa office
Services redistributed to Lebanon and Jordan.
Due to continuing violence in Syria, the Visa and Immigration Section at the Canadian Embassy in Damascus is closed and services have been transferred to visa offices in Lebanon (Beirut) and Jordan (Amman).
Once the Damascus office is able to reopen it will be responsible for all applicants from Syria. For now, anyone in Syria who wants to submit a temporary resident application should apply through the visa office in Lebanon (Beirut) or Jordan (Amman). Syrian national outside of Syria can submit their application to any other Canadian Visa office
