Obligation of the airport transit visa for the holders of a Syrian passport [fr]

The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Home Affaires have decided to establish the airport transit visa for the holders of a Syrian passport. This new temporary formality has been in effect since January 15th, 2013.

Therefore the Syrian nationals flying through the French airports have to apply at the French Embassy for an airport transit visa. To obtain such a visa, they will have to provide a valid passport, one photograph, a plane ticket showing the complete itinerary and a visa (if required) for the country of final destination.

Syrian citizens holders of a diplomatic passport are exempted of the airport transit visa.
