Iranian government endorses agreement on visa-free regime with Armenia

A session of Iran’s Cabinet made decisions on lifting of visa requirements between Armenia and Iran.

The members of Iran’s Cabinet on Sunday reached decisions with respect to setting regulations for abolition of visas for holders of diplomatic and ordinary passports as well as holders of travel documents (leaf of travel) between Iran and Armenia, according to Mehr News Agency of Iran.

On June 16, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian had signed an agreement on lifting visas between the two states.

The agreement, which was approved earlier by the Armenian government, is now also endorsed by the Iranian government.

Accordingly, Armenian and Iranian citizens holding ordinary or diplomatic passports are allowed to stay a maximum of 90 days in the other country, without a need to obtain a visa.
