Are you preparing for living and working in Syria? Or are you already an expat and have recently relocated to Damascus, Aleppo or some other international Syrian city?
The expat relocation to Syria is definitely an exciting international opportunity and cross-cultural adventure: Visiting the landscape such as the Dead Cities of ancient Antioch, getting to know how Syrian folks celebrate ‘Īd aš-Šuhadā’, or acquiring a taste for Syria’s popular dishes like tabbouleh…
Relocating to and living in Syria necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Syrian expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Syria: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Syrian income tax law?ʺ, ʺDo I have to pay an immigration deposit or a departure tax on entering and leaving the country?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Damascus?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Syrian residence permit for my wife?ʺ
Looking for so much information on working and living in Syria is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time. The InterNations Expat Guide for Syria is designed to help you and offers trusted information on all issues of interest to expats living in Syria. Various topics are covered in our Syria Expat Guide from expat institutions and clubs, to sports & leisure or embassies and consulates, up to international schools. Such characteristic questions that concern expat life abroad as ʺAre the anti-smoking laws only valid during Ramadan?ʺ will no more remain open.
In addition, our expat listings for Syria include recommended entries for services and organizations catering to expatriates’ needs, like expat insurance providers or specialised travel agents. By becoming part of our community, you can also participate in the InterNations Forum and discuss with other internationals about your expatriate experience living abroad in Syria.
