the visa exemption, part of a broader initiative, has been extended to 33 countries, including Russia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Brazil, and Mexico. It was approved by Iranian authorities in December. Ezzatollah Zarghami, Iranian Culture Minister, stated that the objective is to boost tourism.
The visa waiver applies exclusively to Indian nationals arriving in Iran by air and is specifically designed for tourism purposes. Under this new policy, individuals holding ordinary passports can enter Iran without a visa once every six months, with a maximum stay of 15 days per visit. It is important to note that the 15-day period is non-extendable.

For those intending to visit for purposes other than tourism, such as business or study, the standard visa application process remains in effect. Additionally, if Indian nationals plan to stay for a longer duration, make multiple entries within six months, or require different types of visas, they must obtain the necessary visas through Iranian representations in India.
