TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian administration has devised plans to allow foreign entrepreneurs working with local knowledge-based companies to visit Iran with special visas, an official said.
The new program to issue business and technology visas for foreign entrepreneurs was discussed in a Sunday meeting between Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Consular, Parliamentary, and Expatriates’ Affairs Kazem Sajjadi and Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari.
