Iran and Ukraine have discussed the reciprocal relaxation of visa regulations.

Discussions were held on Monday during a meeting in Kiev between an Iranian diplomatic delegation led by Ali Chegini, director for consular affairs at the Foreign Ministry, and his Ukrainian counterpart Sergey Alexiovich, SNN reported.

The two sides also specifically talked about waiving visa requirements for certain groups, including those holding diplomatic and service passports as well as students, academics, artists and athletes.

The administration of President Hassan Rouhani has pursued a policy of opening Iran up to the world since coming to power in 2013.

Iran issues visa on arrival at 10 airports to citizens of over 180 countries, while it has mutually abolished the visa regime with a number of countries, including Georgia and Armenia.
