This research aims to detect the relationship between psychological immunity and anxiety and explore psychological immunity and anxiety levels during the COVID - 19 pandemic. The researcher used the psychological immunity system inventory based on (Oláh et al. , 1996) and the anxiety scale during the COVID - 19 pandemic. These instruments were applied to a sample consisting of 3123 Syrians inside and outside the country. After collecting and analyzing the data, the research reveals the following results: There is a statistically significant relationship between psychological immunity and anxiety between the dimensions of anxiety and psychological immunity, as well as between the dimensions of psychological immunity and anxiety. The psychological immunity level is over the hypothesized mean of psychological immunity. That is, the sample individuals have a high level of psychological immunity, except for the dimensions of synchronicity, emotional and irritability control, which have shown a low level. The anxiety level is below the hypothesized mean of the anxiety. That is, the sample individuals have a low level of anxiety except for the dimension of generalized anxiety, which has shown a high level. The researcher, in light of the above, presented results with some recommendations.
