It’s the first time since the beginning of the spread of Covid-19 in early 2020 that travel starts to be possible in most destinations again. Thanks to the vaccines against Covid-19, most countries are reopening their borders. From summer, it should be possible to travel to Iran and Armenia, and Azerbaijan, while other destinations should reopen soon.

What’s the situation in different countries 1stQuest supports? Let’s have a look together.

Tourists can apply for visa to Iran from the 23rd of October

Ezatollah Zarghami, the Minister of Tourism has announced that tourists will be allowed to apply for visas by the month of Aban, which equals the end of October (23rd of October).

“By the order of President [Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi] the issuance of tourist visas and the flow of foreign tourists from land and air borders will be resumed from [the month of] Aban (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) following 19 months of suspension,”

Travel to Armenia is possible

Armenia has been one of the first countries in the region to lift its restrictions on foreign travelers. Travelers from all countries can visit Armenia simply by presenting a negative PCR test. People who have a vaccine certificate do not have to show any PCR test.

Travel to Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan after a quarantine

Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan both currently have a similar policy for foreign travelers. They allow their entrance if they have a negative PCR test and also undergo a 14 days mandatory quarantine. Azerbaijan, however, is making an exception to this quarantine for people attending the Euro 2020 matches. 

Travel to Oman is still not allowed

The Sultanate of Oman, which is currently facing a new surge of Covid19, has not yet lifted its restrictions on foreign travelers as well as lockdown measures. It is thus not possible for foreign visitors to enter Oman at the moment.
