airport fee/tax at damascus intl airport???

by obtolentino

is there an airport fee when departing from damascus international airport. one website i browsed says 200SYP then another 1500SYP... anyone who recently used DAM who can shed light to this? or its included already in the airfare? thanks in advance...


Re: airport fee/tax at damascus intl airport???

by Mel_H

No , that departure tax has been waived since Dec.2009 by the authorities so no passengers don`t pay that tax any longer and no it has not been factored in the airfare ...similar to that Bangkok airport dep. tax passengers have to pay to a local entity .

No you won`t pay anything.Airport tax differs from that compulsary flight tax /fuel surcharge that is supposed to be added to the airfare prior to issuing a ticket.

No, all tickets issued after July 2009 include this tax, so, nothing to pay.

I just came back from Syria and landed/flew out of Damascus two weeks ago, and NO departure tax whatsoever. And it was a breeze going through the immidration as the airport is not that big and maybe because there aren't much passengers during midnight when I arrived and left.

Travel Tips for Damascus

Christian Quarter

by iwys

The Christian Quarter of the Old City of Damascus is the location of several Biblical stories relating to Saul aka St. Paul. Saul walked along Straight Street. He was then guided to the House of Ananias, which is now a chapel and finally, after changing his name to Paul, he was lowered from the city wall to escape from the Jews. A small chapel has been built here too.

The Christian Quarter also has some of the most important remains of the Roman City, including the Roman Arch and the eastern gate or Bab as-Sharqi. It is a quiet area with narrow streets and alleyways, bars and restaurants as well as Armenian, Greek Orthodox and Syrian Catholic churches.

walking on art - tridimensional street art

by call_me_rhia

damascus... ok, heavenly city... i said it before.... there's really beauty everywhere. Look around: beautiful palaces,souqs, shrines and mosques. Look up: mynareths of perfect beauty. And finally look down: the pavement... wonderful... all decorated with stones of different colours laid out in geometrical designs... Definitely a tridimensional beauty!

Salihiyya Quarter

by MM212

Located at the foothills of Mount Qassioun, the Salihiyya neighbourhood was built in the 12th century to house refugees escaping the Crusader invasion of Jerusalem. It later provided refuge to other escaping minorities, such as Kurds and Cretan Moslems. What started as a small village outside Damascus evolved into an old city with architecturally notable madrassas, mausoleums and mosques from the 12th to the 14th centuries. The expansion of modern Damascus has made Salihiyya a mere neighbourhood in the large metropolitan city. If you are in Damascus for a few days, it is worth taking this diversion to see another "Old Damascus" with narrow alleys, a smaller local souk, and impressive architecture. Attached are photos of Salihiya.

Bosra (day-trip)

by call_me_rhia

Bosra is a large-ish village about 2 hours and a half south of Damascus. It's supposed to be one of the top sights of Syria, but I must admit I was not so impressed. Its fame comes from the fact that it has a huge Roman theatre concealed within an Arab fortress: a great stunning sight. The disappointment came from the rest of the town and ruins: the so much advertised unmissable black basalt ruins turned out to be.... well, ruins. Ruins, I must add, in such a bad state of repair (read: no restoration ever) that it's hardly possible to make out what the various things would have stood for. Basically overrated unless you are an archaeologist.
