Blazing fast turnround on Syrian visa

Jump to last reply

Monday afternoon I Fed Ex'ed my (US) passport and accompanying docs. to the Syrian Embassy in Washington. This afternoon (Wednesday), almost exactly 48 hours later, Fed Ex delivered my passport complete with a 15 day multiple entry visa good through Feb 3rd next year!

Unbelievable. I think the only time I've had faster visa service was in Moscow, when my Mongolian visa (for a UK passport) was handled while I waited. Anyway, if you're thinking of heading to Syria now might be a good time to apply for a visa - presumably they're not getting a lot of traffic.
