IRICA: Import Ban Not Linked to TransitIRICA: Import Ban Not Linked to Transit

The recent ban imposed by the government on a list of commodities has nothing to do with their transit, the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration clarified on Saturday, announcing that the transit of these goods can continue.
The Iranian government banned the import of 1,339 commodities categorized as “non-essential goods with domestic equivalents” as of June 20.
The announcement was misinterpreted when it spread beyond borders and international shipping lines and transportation companies ordered their offices and representatives to abstain from accepting freight loaded with such commodities for transit via Iran, based on the misconception that the entry of these goods was banned into the country, IRNA reported.
