EghtesadOnline: Covid-19 PCR testing will be conducted for all international travelers upon their arrival in Iran, according to Shahram Adamnejad, deputy minister of roads and urban development.
“As per the decision of Health Ministry and in order to contain the transmission of multiple variants of the virus, all travelers who intend to visit Iran should present their health certificate validated by a negative PCR test. They will be retested by health personnel stationed at the ports of entry,” he was quoted as saying by the news portal of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development.
Travelers to Iran from Europe will be required to self-quarantine for two weeks after testing negative upon arrival, a health official said on Saturday.
“Travelers from other regions, including neighboring countries, should have tested negative before arrival in the country,” Alireza Raisi, spokesman for the national coronavirus taskforce, said.
Raisi said travelers arriving from Europe with negative test results will be tested again and have to self-quarantine even if their test is negative.
Previously, people coming from Europe were only required to test negative.
