UN special envoy Angelina Jolie arrived at Hatay airport in southern Turkey near the Syrian border on Friday, and has the first photos of her.

The Oscar winning actress and humanitarian, 36, will meet with some of the nearly 10,000 refugees who have fled a bloody crackdown on Syrian anti-government protesters.

Jolie -- the Goodwill Ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees --  will be greeted at the refugee camp with a 16-yard banner reading "Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome," according to the Associated Press.

In April, the actress traveled to Tunisia during its refugee crisis as thousands fled from its war-torn neighbor, Libya.
