Palestinian Refugees Overburdened with Costly Visa-Renewal Fees

Thousands of Palestinian from Syria who have fled to other destinations have been unable to shell out the steep fees of visa-renewal processes in the new destinations.

Renewing travel documents costs up to $300. The applicant is required to pay $800 if he/she expects to have travel documents renewed in no more than eight days. In most cases, applicants receive a two-year renewal.

Palestinian refugees also face difficulties trying to get in touch with Syrian consulates and embassies due to overcrowding. The situation is often made far more complicated by the so-called “brokers of appointments” who have close ties with staff members at the consulate or the embassy. A meeting is sold by such parties at $300.

In order for Palestinians from Syria to obtain visas in new destinations, a valid travel document should be acquired to that end.
