|Assad under pressure

The U.S. Embassy continues to urge U.S. citizens in Syria to depart immediately while commercial transportation is available. The number of airlines serving Syria has decreased significantly since the summer, while many of those airlines remaining have reduced their number of flights. Please take this opportunity to review our most recent Travel Warning for Syria.
U.S. citizens living or traveling in Syria are encouraged to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). U.S. citizens without internet access may enroll directly at the nearest U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate. By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the embassy/consulates to contact them in case of emergency.
