Take care

Re: Wagah Border (Lahore - Amritsar) PAK - IND

Are you sure that train is still running nowadays? and that Wagah is crossable? A few indirect reports reached my ears, telling that you needed some special permit to cross from Pak to India (apparently part of updated covid restrictions).

Re: Iran coronavirus travel restrictions Q&A

From what I understand of this post, it seems to be back to normal (I mean, back to how it was before Dec 25th, at least for travelers reaching Iran from neighboring countries)...
But any confirmation would be highly appreciated (: I'll try to get one tomorrow at the consulate (Istanbul).
