The Honorary Consulate of the Syrian Arab Republic in Montreal has re-opened as of February 1, 2018 and has resumed consular services.
Canadian documents that will be used in Syria will likely need to be authenticated and legalized, also referred to as attestation or ratification. The need to go through this process will depend on your situation and the purpose of the documents. You can confirm these requirements with the officials in Syria.
