Khaddour: The decision to exempt students from certification fees is not limited and it includes all students

The Director of the Consular Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Dr. Hassan Khaddour affirmed  that the decision to exempt Syrian students studying abroad from certification  fees for all academic documents, whether issued inside Syria  or abroad , includes students delegated by the state (on a scholarship)and  those who are studying  at their own expenses. 

He  indicated  that the decision has entered into force at all Syria’s embassies  since the day following  its issuance, and it is an open decision  with no specific time. 

Dr. Khaddour explained  in a statement to SANA that diplomatic missions abroad are working according to unified directives by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, with the aim of providing all facilities to citizens in their countries of residence.

Khadour said that  documents will be issued  very soon through our missions in an original form to save effort and time. 

The director of the consular administration stated that the missions and consulates provide facilities to all the citizens  abroad  in cooperation with  the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates through an automated mechanism.   

He noted the importance  of activating the electronic network between government institutions to complete transactions with the least time and effort. 

Dr. Khaddour indicated that the ministry has recently started submitting electronically to the diplomatic mission the “departure and arrival movement” statement, personal status documents and a non-sentenced document to be issued on the same day .  

With regard to the recently raised rumors about the  missing military  service fees   for those  abroad, Dr. Khaddour stressed that what is circulated on social media is absolutely incorrect, calling on Syrians abroad to ignore  what is published  and  depend  on official sources and national media to obtain information and facts, indicating that all that is Issued officially will be published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates and the national media.
