Dual citizenship not considered crime or breach of law

Tehran, Sept 20, IRAN - Iranian authorities have announced time and again that dual citizenship by itself is not a crime or a breach of law and no one is prosecuted for this in Iran, Iranian Ambassador in London Hamid Baeeidinejad tweeted Thursday.

'Hundreds of Iranian people living in the UK including those with dual citizenship travel to Iran every day in full security,' he said in his tweet, noting 'Any move to politicize the visit of Iranian people to their homeland is doomed to failure.'

His comments came in reaction to the UK Foreign Office's rare warning to all Iranian-British dual nationals against traveling to Iran unless they have an urgent reason to do so.

All British nationals should consider carefully the risks of traveling to Iran, a travel notice by the UK Foreign Office said.
