Prepare for Your Life as an Expat in Syria

A beautiful location, with more than 7,000 years of cultural history, Syria lies between Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Its landscape includes mountains, desert, coastal plains, and plateaus, with hot summers and pleasantly warm winters. Its capital, Damascus, is one of the oldest cities in the world, renowned for its inhabitants' hospitality and rich cuisine. Despite the political unrest, expats continue to go about their daily life in Syria, although the Foreign Office advises taking extra precautions, such as ensuring your travel documents are in order. Anyone who has queries about expat life in Syria can ask those who already live there through our InterNations community.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world.
