Middle East - Quebec - Damascus

Discussion in 'Provincial Nomination Program Immigration' started by mef, Jan 25, 2010.

  1. Hello Genona,

    I am not in a position to politicaly judg the situation in Syria now. but:

    I have been to the interview last October, the embassy located at Mezzah which is 50 minutes driving form the International Airport crossing through the center of Damascus.

    As far I know, there is no demonestration taking place in Damascus neither Mezzah. There are 3 options I beleive:

    - Quebec would consider Syria's current status and they may divert interviews to another location within the region
    - Delay all applications till further notice
    - Not ask for interview and try to pass people over.

    If I were in you shoes, I ouldn't bother alot about it, one of above shall happen.....

    All the luck
  2. glad to hear from u mef, i shouldd always be positive bout it, thats the only option 2 succeed in this journey..bydway, i want to share regarding my bank statement queries.. i emailed them biq damascus if its ok if i send the copy of my passbook instead of bank statement. they actually replied to me in french! i have it translated to a frend whom i knew in this forum who's french is his first languge.. they say..its ok i csn send the copy of my passbook and to sign the financial contract. i already get my certificate of attendance frm alliance for my level a1, i hope they will consider it for now...
  3. Dear friends,

    Though my BIQ is not Damascus but as I read some applicants who biq is Damascus are worried about the political uncertainties in Syria and their impact on process of their CSQ application, so I thought it is better to share some of my experiences which I have from Persian apply-board forum.

    Dear friends!

    I know a lot of Iranian who had interview in the month of June and July but 3-4 days ago most of them received interview cancellation e-mail from BIQ Damascus. I would like to share one of those e-mails with you:

    so you can make out of this e-mail that what is really going on there.

    I didn't want to propagate any kind of negativity but what is really happening there is matter of concern and as friends in the Persian apply board are discussing is that they might shift to another country in order to continue their job.

    Hope it is going to help you a bit and bring you out of uncertainties.

  6. Hello Genona,

    Where are you residing now?
  7. im working right now here in dubai more than 1 yr now..
  8. Genona,

    You must send your application to Damascus:


    sending tO HK will result only in further delay and eventually they will send your application back.

    Good luck... don't wait, just send it now>>>>>>>>>>>>

  14. The Bureau d'immigration du Québec in Damascus is closing and its activities relocated to Montréal

    The Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturelles wishes to inform its clientele that the Québec Immigration Office in Damascus is now closed. All immigration activities there have been transferred to the Ministère’s offices in Montréal.

    The Ministère would like to reassure its clientele that it is committed to diligently pursuing its Middle Eat activities. When necessary, the Ministère’s selection interviews with immigration candidates from the Middle East will take place in neighbouring territories easily accessible to the clientele. This practice, which is standard for the Ministère, is already used in several territories .Contact us
