Postby Crazydre » Sun Jan 29, 2017 12:45 am

As a response to Trump's ban on Iranians entering the US, Iran has now banned Americans from entering Iran.

"Iran will implement the principle of reciprocity until the offensive U.S. limitations against Iranian nationals are lifted"

That does sound like it started already. Any reports are welcome.

Timatic already states that US citizens WILL be refused entry, so no airline is supposed to board anyone presenting a US passport, even if they hold an Iranian visa

Interestingly, though, I read this tweet by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif

Unlike the U.S., our decision is not retroactive. All with valid Iranian visa will be gladly welcomed.

Yup, they seem to have changed their mind, as the notice has now been removed from Timatic
