The Iranian ambassador in Baghdad, Iraj Masjedi, confirmed, on Monday, that the visa exemption with Iraq will currently be limited to air travel, indicating that the decision may include land travel after the end of Corona.
"According to the joint meetings held between Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and our country's officials, Iranian travelers who travel to Iraq by air only, will not need to obtain entry visas," the official Iranian news agency IRNA quoted Masjedi as saying.
He added, "The implementation of this decision will take place after the completion of the fortieth visit of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him)."
He pointed out, "At the present time, exemptions from visas for travel to Iraq will be limited to air travel, but they may extend to land travel after the management of the Corona crisis and the decline of the epidemic."
Yesterday, Sunday, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi confirmed, during an expanded meeting with the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ibrahim Raisi, that Iraq intends to raise the requirement to obtain entry visas for Iranians at airports after the fortieth visit.
It is noteworthy that Al-Kazemi concluded today, Monday, his visit to Iran, in which he met with senior officials, including President Ibrahim Raisi, where the overall bilateral files and relations between the two countries were discussed.
