A beautiful location, with more than 7,000 years of cultural history, Syria lies between Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Its landscape includes mountains, desert, coastal plains, and plateaus, with hot summers and pleasantly warm winters. Its capital, Damascus, is one of the oldest cities in the world, renowned for its inhabitants' hospitality and rich cuisine. Despite the political unrest, expats continue to go about their daily life in Syria, although the Foreign Office advises taking extra precautions, such as ensuring your travel documents are in order. Anyone who has queries about expat life in Syria can ask those who already live there through our InterNations community.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Canada or Panama, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
By networking with fellow expats in Syria, you can have an inside view of everything you need to know about the region. Adhering to our code of polite behavior, trust, and a friendly and welcoming attitude, our expats can convey to you the real picture of aspects of daily life, such as healthcare, employment, and travel. Rather than hearing about the region on the news, you will have up-to-the-minute information from the people who are there. InterNations also facilitates expats meeting face-to-face at many diverse social gatherings, instigated through our site and aimed at linking up expats with similar hobbies and interests.
