Iran-Pakistan border reopens for trade and students

Islamabad, IRNA – Pakistan has reopened joint border crossing with the Islamic Republic of Iran at the Taftan-Mirjavah checkpoint to facilitate the movement of traders and students.

Pakistani media, quoting the officials of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), reported that the Taftan-Mirjavah crossing was reopened after a three-month closure due to corona outbreak.

The report said Pakistani businessmen, students, and truck drivers are now allowed to enter Iran in accordance with health protocols and with authorized travel documents, but the ban on pilgrims or tourists is still in place.

Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) is also launching a regular immigration process at the Taftan border point, allowing Pakistani citizens to enter Iran.

It is pertinent to mention that due to the increasing number of coronavirus cases, Iranian authorities banned Pakistani nationals from entering Iran on June 29.

However, during this period, the Pak-Iran transit trade continued and the movement of Iranian citizens to Pakistan was also not disrupted.

On September 20, Zero Point Gate between Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan at Taftan border crossing was reopened after a six-month closure to facilitate duty-free trade between border residents of the two neighboring countries.
