Iraq to ease border crossing for tourists from Iran
The Iraqi Minister of Culture, Hassan Nadhem, said on Monday, April 18, officials from the ministry met with a delegation from Iran for talks on easing procedures for tourists at the countries’ land borders.

Nadhem said the Iranian delegation asked for Iraq to make changes that would allow for easier crossings for tourists, who have at times been effectively unable to travel to the country because of the difficulties in crossing the border.
He said Iraq has decided to ease the routine and reduce taxes and has called on Iran to do the same for Iraqi tourists to the country, NRT reported.
The Iranian delegation said in return for Baghdad improving travel procedures, Tehran would place restrictions to limit the number of Iranians entering Iraq.
