The entry into force of Russia’s agreement with Iran to simplify visa procedures is the first step toward the abolition of visas for Russian tourists, Iran’s Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanai said Saturday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The ambassador expressed hope that Iran’s tourism organization would file a request to the Iranian Foreign Ministry to cancel visas for tourists from Iran and Russia.

"After the signing of an agreement on easing visa requirements, which was signed in 2015 [between Russia and Iran], this will be a step toward the abolition of visas for tourist groups," Sanai told reporters.
