Iranian Government Easing Entry Rules: No more Passport Border Stamps on Foreign tourists’ passports

In March 2017, US president, Donald Trump, ordered a restricting rule for travel to the US for those who have visited Iran, in addition to Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

Therefore, the Iranian government tries to ease the entry rules by no more passport border stamps on foreigners’ passports.

According to Ali Asghar Mounesan, Iranian Vice President and Head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHTO), passports of foreign tourists visiting Iran will not have to be stamped. He stressed that with entry and exit stamps not to be put on the passports of the visiting tourists, we are trying to remove tourists' concerns about visiting Iran because of US sanctions.
