TEHRAN, Jan. 11 (MNA) – The Iranian interior minister said on Tuesday that travel bans at shared borders with neighboring countries have been lifted.

Ahmad Vahidi, who is a key member of the National Taskforce for Fighting Coronavirus told reporters that travel restrictions with neighboring countries have been lifted and the individuals from the neighbors can enter the country on condition they have a negative PCR test or provide proof of injection of 2 doses of vaccine.

Vahidi added that restrictions for the passengers who enter Iran through air borders from the countries in which the Covid-19 pandemic is under control have been removed.
