Palestinian Refugee in Netherlands Obtains 1st Passport in Her Lifetime

Thousands of Palestinian refugees who fled war-torn Syria were granted citizenship in European destinations, following a mountainous journey in the hunt for humanitarian asylum by holders of Syrian travel documents.

Palestinian refugee Shatha Tamim and her children were recently granted citizenship documents in the Netherlands.

“A passport has become a dream for us, the Palestinians”, says Shatha. “This Dutch passport is the first we’ve ever received”.

Shatha fled the Syrian war to the Netherlands some four years ago, seeking a safe shelter for her children.

She took refuge in the northern Dutch city of Zaandam, where she worked as an officer with NewBees.

On March 23, 2019 she applied for citizenship following a four-year stay in the country. Her demand was approved in October. Her sister Ayeda and son Akram Zaytouni also received Dutch citizenship.

According to AGPS data, over 100,000 Palestinians from Syria have reached Europe, fleeing the war-stricken Syrian territories. Most of the world’s countries have opted for a closed-door immigration policy regarding the Palestinian refugees from Syria.
