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

The meeting made relevant decisions on setting regulations for abolition of visas for holders of diplomatic and ordinary passports as well as holders of travel documents (leaf of travel) between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Armenia.

Previously on June 16, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian signed an agreement on abolishing the visa between the two state.

The agreement, which was approved by the Armenian government aiming to regulate the two countries citizens’ mutual visits, was also endorsed by the Iranian government during the Sunday session.

Visa-free travels between Iran and Armenia mainly aim to boost bilateral ties, deepen mutual trade as well as to escalate economic relations between the two states.

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