MOSCOW, January 25. /TASS/. An agreement between Russia and Iran to simplify visa procedures will come into effect on February 6, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
An intergovernmental agreement was signed in Tehran on November 23, 2015 in the presence of the Russian and Iranian presidents, Vladimir Putin and Hassan Rouhani, following Russian-Iranian talks.
"The document is aimed at simplifying on reciprocal basis conditions for the trips of the two countries’ nationals," the ministry said, noting that it would relax visa rules for Russian and Iranian business people, people participating in scientific, cultural and creative activity, for students and teachers, tourists and other categories.
The agreement will help strengthen Russian-Iranian ties on all directions of partnership, the ministry said in its report.
