Tehran: Confiscation of the Iranian expatriates` passports upon arrival in the country has been banned, it was reported on Wednesday.
"All Iranians living in other countries can travel to their homeland without fear of their passports being seized at Iran`s international airports," an official in charge of
Iranian expatriates` affairs told IRNA.
Mohammad-Sharif Malekzadeh added that the ban was enforced based on an agreement recently reached between the High Council on Iranian Expatriates` Affairs and the Passport Department of the Presidential Office.
The Iranian expatriates arriving in Iran can legally follow up any case of violating the ban through special centres established at Iran`s international airports to this regard.
