Unfortunately, you can't send money to Syria at the time of writing. Even if you have a loved one in Syria who needs money desperately, an international money transfer to a sanctioned country is illegal in Australia.
Why can't I send money to Syria?
Due to ongoing civil war and violence used by the Syrian regime, the Australian government has imposed sanctions against Syria. This means you can't send money or goods to anyone living there. Attempting to get around these sanctions is illegal. If you send money to another country without sanctions against Syria and then pass those funds onto a recipient in Syria, you may face tough legal and financial consequences.
You can read more about the sanctions on Syria on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's website.
