Iran may Revisit Visa-Free Travel Deal with Georgia

There may be a need to make new decisions regarding a visa-free travel agreement signed between Iran and Georgia if the issue of deportation or entry ban of dozens of Iranian citizens from the Caucasus country is not resolved, a lawmaker said.

“If Georgia fails to meet the terms of the 2010 agreement and refuses to implement them, our country may decide to revisit it,” Alireza Rahimi, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told ICANA in remarks published on Saturday.

Georgia has stopped and deported Iranian travelers at its airports or ports of entry in the last few weeks, although they had the necessary documents, according to media reports confirmed by the Iranian Embassy to Georgia.
