My best friend in Syria, and he lost his house and job and so many things, I am on Visa in America, Id like to help him out to come over here, what are my options ? there is no US Embassy or Consulate over there anymore, I am not sure about the UNHCR office, does he have to be outside Syria to apply , Can i ask for a visa to bring him here to stay with me for a while ?
I'm sorry. This is a difficult situation. Your friend could try for refugee status from UNHCR or from the embassy or consulate of any other country that your friend might be able to get to. Your friend would not have to be outside of Syria to apply. It's difficult to provide suggestions when the situation there is so difficult and changing.
