Douma was the last rebel-held town in the Eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus, and is the site of the alleged gas attack that prompted a volley of Western air strikes on Saturday.
The team will work with the United Nations Department of Safety and Security ensure the safety of the team, it said.
Trump's letter to congressional leaders cites the rationale he gave publicly Friday night when he announced that the USA and allies Britain and France were firing missiles into Syria in response to an alleged poison gas attack on Syrian rebels near Damascus the previous week. The OPCW team arrived the same day that the US, the United Kingdom and France conducted airstrikes on targets they say are associated with a Syrian chemical weapons program.
Damascus and its ally Russian Federation have denounced the Western action, in particular for refusing to wait until the results of the fact-finding mission sent by the OPCW in the wake of the April 7 incident. Footage of young victims foaming at the mouth and weeping in agony has thrust Syria's civil war - in which half a million people have been killed in the past seven years - to the forefront of world concern again.
Syria agreed to give up its chemical weapons arsenal in 2013 and submit to OPCW inspections.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denied that Moscow had interfered with any evidence.
British foreign minister Boris Johnson told the BBC on Sunday that western powers had no plans for further strikes but "if and when such a thing were to happen, then clearly with allies we would study what the options were".
Syria and its ally Russian Federation deny any chemical attack took place - with Russian Federation calling it a "staged thing".
Britain's Ambassador Peter Wilson said in The Hague that the United Nations had cleared the inspectors to go but they had been unable to reach Douma because Syria and Russian Federation had been unable to guarantee their safety. This was at the very beginning after this information (of the attack) appeared.
Despite a U.S. -Russian agreement to completely eliminate Syria's chemical weapons program after hundreds of people were gassed with sarin in Ghouta on August 21, 2013, the OPCW had been unable to verify that all manufacturing, storage and research facilities were destroyed.
A government-organized media tour did not include the building where, according to rescue workers and medics who were in town at the time, dozens of people were killed by poison gas. "Therefore allegations of this toward Russian Federation are groundless", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. In the case of chlorine, it is permitted to possess it for civilian use, but not to use it as a weapon.
The three countries consulted and collaborated on an assault in which more than a 100 missiles, reportedly targeting specific sites, were launched into Syria after the government was accused of a chemical attack.
