Iranian Pilgrims' Cars Allowed Into Iraq

 Iranian Pilgrims' Cars Allowed Into Iraq Iranian Pilgrims' Cars Allowed Into Iraq

Following an agreement with the government in Baghdad, cars registered in Iran can now legally enter Iraq without extra official processes or paperwork. The agreement will help hundreds and thousands of pilgrims from Iran who cross the border annually to make the pilgrimage to the holy sites in Karbala Najaf. In 2016 more than one million Iranians crossed the border mostly by bus or on foot to visit the holy places. Under the new deal, Iran-registered vehicles will have to fill out a form before entering the country and will have to buy a short-term insurance policy from Iraqi firms, the website Persian Khodro reported Wednesday. As per the agreement, Iranian motorists and their vehicles will be subject to laws of Iraq, including speeding fines and other violations.
