Work Permit Cases not Presently Being Accepted at Damascus Visa Office

Due to the current violence in Syria, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has elected to temporarily cease services at the visa office in Damascus. Applicants from Syria wishing to submit work permit applications must presently send these to the visa offices in either Amman, Jordan, or Beirut, Lebanon. Syrian nationals outside of Syria may use the visa office normally responsible for the jurisdiction of the country in which they have been legally admitted.

There is presently no indication as to how long the temporary termination of Canadian work permit services will last.
