Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 26 / Trend T.Jafarov /
Feb.1, Iran will unilaterally lift visa regime for the Azerbaijani citizens.
"The Azerbaijani citizens can stay in Iran for 15 days," Iran's Consul to Azerbaijan Zare Behrouz Mirzaei said. "Those wishing to extend the stay in the country may apply to the Iranian Interior Ministry."
Based on appeal, duration of the visit could be extended up to three months, he added.
However, despite the abolition of the visa regime, the country maintains order on passing of the Azerbaijani citizens from blood tests for the presence of dangerous diseases. Special centers will operate in Baku, Ganja and Lankaran for this purpose.
So far, Iran has lifted visa regime for the Turkish citizens only.
Azerbaijan has yet refrains from retaliatory steps.
Iran lifted visa regime unilaterally according to the memorandum to lift the visa regime signed in 1993 with Azerbaijan.
