Beware Of Visa Fraud For Syrians – Egyptian Lawyer Warns

Written by: Travel Inn

Youssef Al-Mataani, who specialises in Syrian affairs, said in a video clip on Facebook that some of these companies offer Syrians wishing to enter Egypt a one month entry visa for $500.

He explained that the companies are active in Hurghada on the Red Sea, Marsa Matrouh and some of the Suez Canal cities in Egypt and use social media to identify their victims. They claim that they can facilitate entry to Egypt on a one-month entry visa provided that the passengers’ passports are handed over to the companies on arrival at the airport.

The lawyer pointed out that these kinds of companies seek to steal from desperate people. Legal measures are, he added, being taken against them.
