According to ISNA, Because of the critical situation in Iran, the National Corona Anti-Corruption Headquarters has announced new Travel Restrictions and the closure of accommodation facilities.
This national department states that from Monday August 16 to Saturday, August 20, all offices, organizations, and banks must be closed.
In the latest updated list published on Sunday August 15 travel restrictions will be implied, and accommodation centers (including hotels, motels, guesthouses, boarding houses, and similar occupations) have been removed from the group of occupations necessary for this holiday period and not allowed to operate during these five days.
The closure of museums and historical and tourist sites, which began in April, will continue.
However, public transportation companies, including rail, air, and road, which are in the essential business category, are allowed to operate for five days off. In the past holidays, passenger service companies were considered a necessary occupation under this section and continued to operate for the plane, train, and bus tickets. There was usually no oversight of how they operated during the Crohn’s holidays. Travel restrictions did not apply to them.
Some rail and airline companies have started extensive advertisements with the promise of bonuses and discounts for train and plane tickets on some routes for the upcoming travel restriction.
The resolution of the National Corona Headquarters does not explicitly mention the cessation of tours and group trips. But the same resolutions emphasize that severe travel restrictions via vehicle traffic and personal meals will be imposed from noon on Sunday August 15, to midnight on Friday, August 25.
The law enforcement force is obliged to take the necessary measures seriously and determine to block the entrances and exits of the cities to prevent any inter-provincial traffic.
The governor of Tehran has also announced that the entrances and exits of Tehran, which had the largest number of outgoing passengers in all periods, will be closed until August 20, and no traffic permit will be issued until the travel restrictions stand.
