Unfortunately, no. The current US travel ban against citizens of Syria and several other countries was generally laid out in presidential proclamation 9645 issued Sept. 24, 2017, and upheld by the Supreme Court on June 26, 2018, despite significant controversy within the US. The rules are different for citizens of each affected country. Under the current ...

No, and you should not generally expect countries to accept visas issued by other countries. Ukraine requires Syrian citizens to obtain a visa, which is, as usual, done at a Ukrainian embassy or consulate. Ukrainian visa requirements are here, there is no provision for entering with a visa issued by Russia or any other foreign country. Belarus likewise ...

It depends. You have to convince the Spanish officials that you are a genuine tourist. That means you plan to come, see the sights, and leave again. They will want to know who pays the trip and why. If it is "a lot of money" for your friend, she has to explain why she will spend it. They will want to know what reasons you have to return to Syria. One of the ...

Well, I am a Syrian myself and I have applied for the US visa earlier this year (2019) and was granted a 3 months visa. My plan is to visit the US during summer vacation so the officer approved my visa and asked me to mail my passport a week before my planned flight to get it on. My condition is as follows: I live in Turkey. Homemaker. No other passport. ...

I'm Syrian and I applied for a Schengen visit visa to visit 2 of my friends, one was a greek and the other one was a UAE national getting higher education in Athens.

No. You will need to stay within the international zone of the airport. You do have an exemption from the requiring an ATV but those exemptions do not allow an entry in the Schengen area.

In Schengen area, in most airports (as far as I know, all airports one might transit through), there are distinct Schengen airport zone and international zone. As a general rule, you cross the border in/out of Schengen only if needed. If your origin and destination are both out of Schengen area, if you stay in the airport international zone, you do not need ...

Assuming that you hold an Egyptian passport (as you did not specify that in the message), you do not need a visa provided you are either: 1) transiting in Geneva airport on the same calendar day or 2) transiting in Zurich and will be there for less than 48 hours.

There is an excellent page that will tell you if you need a visa for the UK. Feeding in the details from the question indicates that this person doesn't need a visa to transit the UK. However there are a couple of important conditions: The person must have the US visa with them, or some other conclusive evidence that it exists. Without the valid US visa the ...

When you arrive in the UK, you will speak with an Immigration Officer and at that time you can ask him/her to vary your 'end date'. They can if they want, but do not have to do it and most of the time they not do it. This is addressed in Paragraph 31A of the Immigration Rules, which states... Where a person has arrived in the United Kingdom with leave ...

Is your transit more or less than 24 hours? If it's not more, then you won't need a transit visa.

Yes, he can. The Georgian government provides a "Do I need a visa?" wizard. It says that your friend would be able to enter on the basis of Ordinance 256, which gives a list of countries "whose visa and/or residence permit holders may enter Georgia without a visa for an appropriate period and under appropriate conditions" "for 90 calendar days in any 180-...

Yes. The proclamation does not revoke any visas that were issued before the effective date of the proclamation, and the restrictions in the proclamation do not apply to any foreigners who had a valid visa on the effective date of the proclamation for that person. (And if you got your visa after the effective date, that would mean you must have gotten a ...

YES you can try to visit again. That does not mean anything will change, you can still be denied entry if your circumstances have not changed and it is determined you still do not qualify for entry. Make sure you don't have a ban. Review the document you were given when denied entry.

No You cannot get a visa upon arrival,You will have to apply to the nearest Turkish Embassy/consulate for a visa as a Syrian citizen. Syrian Citizens need a Visa upon entry in Turkey. From official wikipedia visa policy of Turkey: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Turkey There is no e visa facility for Syrian citizens. From official ...

Unfortunately not. Syrian citizens are required to obtain a visa before travelling to Turkey and aren't even eligible for an eVisa, according to the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Syria: Ordinary and official passport holders are required to have visa to enter Turkey. Timatic says the same.

It’s not what you want to hear but IMHO you have zero chance of getting a UK visa based on your current personal circumstances. You fit the profile of a high risk applicant - young, no ties to your country of residence, existing connections in the UK etc etc. All of that will lead an ECO to conclude that the risk of an illegal overstay is unacceptably high.

No. You probably don't need to go through passport control, but even if you did, you would not require a visa. See http://www.mfa.gov.rs/en/consular-affairs/entry-serbia/visa-regime: At its meeting of 30 October 2014, the Government of the Republic of Serbia adopted the Decision on visa free entry to the Republic of Serbia for holders of foreign passports ...

Unfortunately the USA currently (2018.2) has a travel ban for people from Syria that has for the time being not been ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. While the cases are making their way through the system, there’s been an effective halt to new visa processing that will make getting a visa for you exceedingly difficult or impossible in the near ...

The short answer is it depends. To transit in Germany, you do not need a visa (even though most Syrians do). To pass through Schengen border controls, however (that is, to leave the international zone of a German airport), you do need a visa. Entering the Schengen zone To enter the Schengen zone, which includes Germany, you need a short-stay visa. The ...

We cannot tell you the odds. But some things would appear alarming to a visa official unless your explanation was unclear. Bringing €30000 for one month would be rather unusual. Few tourists spend that much. Having that much money at home and bringing only a small part is better. A stable job with income in excess of expenses is much more important than the ...
