CHAGAI: Immigration clearance to Iran started on Sunday after Iranian authorities lifted travel ban on Pakistani citizens having business and student visas and allowed several people to enter the country via Taftan.

According to official sources, the immigration clearance at Taftan border was closed almost three months ago following restrictions after resurgence of coronavirus cases in Iran. However, Pakistani citizens travelling by air were allowed to enter the county.

“Still Pakistani tourists and pilgrims cannot travel to Iran,” the sources said, adding that the people with latest PCR tests and vaccination certificates against coronavirus would be allowed to enter Iran.
