Following the announcement of a five-day holiday in the country, the National Corona Headquarters has only allowed “necessary” jobs to the latest published list. Amended Passengers Rule also follows their decision.
According to ISNA, the National Corona Headquarters for the fifth management of Covid disease has Amended Passengers Rules in Iran. In addition to the guilds, all offices, organizations, and banks must be closed. That order covers the national transportation system and traveling.
With the rise of the fifth wave of corona in Iran, the rules of passengers’ admission at entry points of Iran changed according to the current conditions.
According to ISNA, Amended Passengers Rules states that in some international transport companies, all passengers entering Iran, including those who have been vaccinated, must have a negative corona test certificate when traveling to Iran.
In July, the National Corona headquarters exempted passengers who had received two full doses of the Corona vaccine from taking the PCR test at entry points.
The updated travel regulations (the Amended Passengers Rules) to Iran emphasize that the corona test must be within 96 hours before the flight in the approved centers of the country of origin and its negative certificate must be in English.
Amended Passengers Rules are mandatory for all travelers over the age of eight and include people with the Covid-19 vaccine card.
Airlines flying on international routes have also been urged to avoid accepting passengers without a negative corona test on Iranian flights.
These regulations will be implemented at the entrances of the country from August 17th.
Iran’s borders are still open for international transportation, but foreign tourists are not issued tourist visas. Amended Passengers Rules clarifies that only citizens intending to travel to Iran for work, education, and treatment can apply for Iranian visas.
Reports indicate that car travel began before the Amended Passengers Rules. It seems that the National Corona Headquarters has not developed a plan for managing this type of travel, which has a history and was seen in all past holidays and traffic restrictions and has only closed accommodation centers, restaurants, and tourist and entertainment centers.
