(Persia Digest) – The passport office of Iran’s Foreign Ministry has circulated a memo announcing: “Based on the implementation of the principle of reciprocity and considering Serbia’s discontinuation of the visa waiver program for Iran, the same decision has been taken by Iran to implement visa requirements for Serbian nationals who intend to travel to Iran.”
The memo also states that as from today, Tuesday 16 October 2018, Iranian nationals wishing to travel to Serbia, and Serbian nationals wishing to travel to Iran must apply for visas.
Persia Digest (PD) reports that the visa waiver agreement between Iran and Serbia was signed in 2017 and direct flights began between Tehran and Belgrade in March this year. But many Iranians traveling to other European countries via Serbia led its government to cancel the visa waiver for Iranian tourists a few days ago.
