Syria: Draft law to impose visas on Arab nationals
The Syrian authorities have prepared a draft law under which previously exempt Arab nationals will now need a visa to visit the country, a pro-regime newspaper reported on Monday.


Parliament will discuss "a draft law that regulates the entry and residence of Arabs and foreigners," Al-Watan said. If approved, the law would require "any person entering or leaving Syria to hold a valid passport" which "would need to be stamped with a visa from one of our diplomatic missions or consulates abroad."
