General Security Wednesday called on Syrian refugees and Palestinians from Syria who entered Lebanon before January 2015 to settle their residency status.Aid organizations previously expressed concern over General Security's new residency renewal measures for Syrians and Palestinians, especially a provision requiring registered refugees to pledge not to work.Notably, it draws a distinction between Syrian nationals registered with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and those outside its purview.In line with the new rule, refugees seeking to renew their residencies for this year must provide the General Security with a written pledge not to work; a fee of $200; a copy of their UNHCR registration document; a housing pledge, which typically requires a notarized declaration from a mukhtar; and valid ID.
