Iran issuing free visa for Iraqi visitors

IRNA – Iran’s embassy in Baghdad started issuing fee visas for Iraqis on Monday.

‘Free visa for Iraqi people has been issued since April 1, in Iran’s embassy and Consulate Generals across Iraq,’ an informed source at the embassy told Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

The source also clarified that applying for visas is necessary for Iraqis, but the difference is that they need not to pay any fee for it.

Iran and Iraq agreed to implement the free-visa plan during the recent visit by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani to Iraq in March.

It is a mutual agreement, meaning that Iranian visitors need to apply for visas for entering Iraq, but they do not have to pay for it.
