Greeting from the US Army Leave Authorization department, I am obligated to update you on the ongoing Tourist Visa processing for you to come over to Syria to visit your Fiance who is serving in the Syrian Peace Envoy. A tourist Visa application form have been filled out on your behalf to enable your visit.
Here are the terms:
All visa services at the Syrian Embassy in Damascus have been suspended until further notice. The Embassy regrets the inconvenience this temporary suspension causes for persons wishing to visit or immigrate to Syria. The Embassy will commence visa operations gradually as circumstances permit. This is generally the status of visa application here, but due to the fact that you are been invited by one of our service man, Area commander smith Mayville with military code number UN5053/SN who is serving proficiently. Every military man serving in the war zone is entitled to this opportunity and that is why we will go ahead to grant you a tourist visa to visit your Fiance in our base.
The Embassy will continue to process the visa applications of anyone who was interviewed prior to the suspension of visa services.
Applicants who need to travel to Syria before resumption of full visa services in Damascus are welcome to apply for a non immigrant visa at any time and consulate outside Syria which provides visa services. Information on the requirements for doing so and the locations of the Syrian visa-issuing embassies and consulates is available any where in the world. The non-refundable MRV application fee must be paid to the US Army Leave Department to enable them work hand in hand with the Syrian embassy in the United State and Japan. This is so because you are living in Japan and a civilian who intends to visit a military personnel to get a clear result because of the increase in terrorism around the world, This is according to procedures established by each United Nations or consulate.
New Visa Fees: $ 1680. This Visa fee is at high cost and it is required because the Syrian Embassy does not issue Visa to non military personnel based on the ongoing Civil War and fight against insurgency.
The charge for old Visa Fees:
Visitor visas for business and pleasure (the B1/B2 "tourist" visa, our most commonly issued visa) will be $140
Student and exchange visas (F, M, and J visas) will be $140
Petition-based visas for employment, performance, or religious purposes (H, L, O, P, Q, R) will be $150
Treaty/trade investor visas (E-1 and E-2) will be $390.
We are pleased to announce that selected Citi Bank and Five Star Credit union branches throughout the USA will be able to accept the fees for any non-immigrant visa applications. The Syrian Embassy is no longer collecting non-immigrant visa application fees at the Embassy. They accept for Non immigrants wanting to visit Syria through a military personnel, This helps make the visa application process simpler and faster. Non-immigrant and Non Military personnel visa application fees should be paid in USD to this Citi bank account Account,
