Palestinians from Syria to Submit Visas Renewal Demands in Lebanon

The Lebanese General Security called upon Palestinians from Syria wishing to renew their visas in Lebanon to attach their identity documents to the demand.

The calls were reportedly launched after archived documents of Palestinians from Syria disappeared from a security office.

Identity documents, passports, personal photos, and entry permissions figure on the list of required documents.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a refugee from Syria said the move comes a couple of months after a General Security office in Sidon lost a record of 30 identity documents, passports, and other official papers of registered Palestinians from Syria who submitted demands to renew their stays in Lebanon.

The refugee said an officer told them there is no hope the refugees’ lost documents can be retrieved, adding that recovering identity documents is never a risk-free process and the refugees might lose their lives or freedoms once they are back to Syria.

Palestinian refugees from Syria in Lebanon continue to sound alarm bells over their ambivalent legal status and the inhospitality shown by local authorities.

Palestinians from Syria are reported to lack legal status in Lebanon. The absence of specific legislation addressing the unique situation of the Palestinians of Syria has made them vulnerable to marginalization within the Lebanese polity.

The price leap, steep rental fees, expensive education charges, and lack of access to the local labor market, along with the absence of relief aids, have made life unbearable for the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
