Syrian Nationals Now Require Visas to Enter Egypt.


From now on Syrian nationals must obtain a visa and security approval before arriving in Cairo. Sadly, people had to know about this the hard way, after
Officials at Cairo International Airport refused an inbound Syrian Airlines plane and requested it fly back to Latakia with all its passengers on board.

Syrian Airlines flight number 203, flying from Latakia with 95 passengers, had arrived in Cairo without foreknowledge of the new procedures, and was forced to turn back.
Other instances in which Syrian citizens were turned back occurred when Fifty-five other Syrians arrived on a Middle East Airlines flight from Beirut, and 39 others arrived on other airlines. They were denied entry into Egypt and were forced to depart at their own expense.
