Iran has resumed granting visas to Afghan drivers and merchants, said the country’s commercial attaché to Afghanistan on Tuesday.
Mohammad-Mehdi Javanmard Qassab added the process was faced with a problem which has been settled, Mehr News Agency reported.
He noted that given the significance of trade between the two countries, the problem was resolved after necessary follow-ups by Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade, the Iranian Embassy in Afghanistan and the Trade Promotion Organization (TPO).
He added the visa issuance process has been resumed after a two-month hiatus.
Javanmard Qassab said, “Afghan traders and industrialists will be granted visas for air travel if they have health certificates showing that they are not infected with the coronavirus.”
Regarding the terms and conditions for issuing visas for Afghan drivers, he added, “Afghan drivers will obtain Iran’s visa if they receive the same kind of health certificate.”
