MOSCOW, February 8. /TASS/. The diplomatic missions in Russia and Iran may issue multiple-entry visas for up to five years to the citizens on the list of categories envisaged by a memorandum on consular cooperation, Russia’s embassy in Iran said on Monday.
"The embassies of Iran and Russia, and their consulates-general may issue multiple-entry visas for one year for citizens from a group mentioned in the text (of memorandum) if the visa recipient earlier obtained a single-entry visa to the accepting country," the press service said.
"The embassies and consulates-general of both countries will be also able to issue visas for five years," it said.
An agreement between Russia and Iran to simplify visa issuance procedures came into effect on February 6. An intergovernmental agreement was signed in Tehran on November 23, 2015 following a meeting of the Russian and Iranian presidents, Vladimir Putin and Hassan Rouhani.
The categories of citizens subject to simplified visa procedures are pupils, students and university teachers of both countries as well as arts and culture groups. Businessmen and entrepreneurs of any region of Iran and Russia who have an agreement on brotherly relations may obtain a visa upon a written request of a mayor or a governor.
