TEHRAN (FNA) – Iran’s ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to Azerbaijan Nasir Hamidi Zare said that Tehran has eased visa regime between the two countries.
He stated that Iranian government ratified the document on abolishment of visa regime between the two countries 12 years ago.
“Azerbaijan will adopt the document on abolishment of visa regime in expedient time,” he said.
The envoy noted that, though visa regime is not abolished completely, Iran gives free visa for Azerbaijani citizens traveling from border districts and Nakhichevan.
He added that Iran gives 6 month-visa or one year-visa to Azerbaijani citizens who visited Iran for trade or medical treatment.
“Blood test within visa process is also abolished,” he said.
Elsewhere, the diplomat touched upon five-side talks on the legal status of the Caspian Sea carried out by littoral states, and said, “There are particular models for the distribution of closed seas like the Caspian Sea. The consensus should be achieved among five countries on the settlement of the issue. Each of five countries’ presidents stated his position on the Caspian Sea legal regime in the Tehran summit. The talks on the legal status of the Caspian Sea will be solved positively soon.”
