Repatriation of 37 Romanian citizens from Syria via Lebanon


MFA informs that on Wednesday 8 August a group of 37 Romanian citizens are to be repatriated from Syria via Lebanon, at their request. The group will be assisted by a team from the Embassy of Romania in Beirut, who will offer the them consular and logistic support, as well as food, water and medicines.

MFA thanks the Lebanese authorities, including the Internal Security Forces, for the support granted to this operation.

The action is part of the procedures of consular support granted by the MFA, through the embassies in Damascus and Beirut, within the limits of specific competencies. The Mission of Romania in Syria keeps in touch with Romanian citizens in conflict zones, granting them the necessary support  depending on their specific situation. Moreover, the Embassy issues travel documents and provides consular services.

MFA reminds Romanian citizens who are still in Syria that without their having previously registered with the diplomatic mission, the Romanian authorities cannot identify the best ways to lend them support. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls again on Romanian citizens in Syria to register  in the Single Register of the Embassy of Romania in Damascus, this allowing them to be kept abreast of consular assistance possibilities and the situation in the area.

The MFA’s Consular Department  has a telephone line (+40.21.319.21.37) Romanian citizens affected by the situation in Syria can call to ask for consular support and information.

Given that the situation in Syria has badly deteriorated in the last few days, both in the capital and elsewhere (notably Aleppo), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises Romanian citizens still in that country to leave it as soon as possible by the transportation means that are still operational.
