The Syrian passengers who were supposed to depart for Turkey could not leave after two Turkish planes failed to arrive on Friday, January 8, over a recent decision taken by the Turkish authorities.



According to reports from the local media, the Syrian nationals are prevented from entering the Turkish territory over newly announced visa rule. The Syrians are asked to apply for an entry visa to Turkey following the regular global security concerns.



The 400 Syrian passengers remained stranded in the airport before three Syrian planes came to the Rafik Hariri airport to transport the Syrian passengers back to Syria. The passengers were scheduled for Thursday evening, but two passenger jets failed to appear to transport them to Turkey.



With the decision enforced, all Syrians will now have to apply for an entry visa to Turkey, according to the Turkish foreign ministry’s announcement at the end of last December.



The ministry said Syrians will be able to obtain visas from Turkish embassies and consulates.
