Turkish Authorities Pledge to Work Out Situation of Migrants without Kimlik Visas

The Turkish authorities have agreed to grant the temporary protection card (kimlik) to Palestinian refugees from Syria.

The Free Palestinian Syrian Assembly (Maseer) said a meeting between Syrian CSOs and the Turkish government culminated in the latter’s agreement to enhance the legal and humanitarian situation of Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) and provide them with kimlik visa cards.

Hundreds of PRS have been unable to provide for their children and families in Turkey. A large number of companies, factories, and shops shut their doors for fear of further COVID-19 contaminations. Several Palestinian families have lost their sole sources of income as a result.

Activists have leveled heavy criticism at the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Embassy in Turkey over their apathy regarding the refugees’ ongoing cries for help.

Unofficial statistics indicate that 10,000 Palestinians from Syria have sought shelter in Turkey, where they have been facing dire socio-economic conditions and denied access to the local labor market.

Turkish embassies continue to prevent Palestinian refugees from Syria from obtaining visas. As a result, hundreds of Palestinians have embarked on life-threatening journeys via illegal immigration roads to reach Turkey, fleeing war-tattered Syria, among other war-stricken zones.
