BELGRADE, Serbia | Serbia abolishes visa-free travel with Iran over EU pressure
BELGRADE, Serbia — Serbia has abolished vise-free travel with Iran apparently in response to European Union pressure after the system was abused by migrants trying to reach the bloc.
More than 15,000 Iranians have visited Serbia since visas were abolished last August. Many have moved on toward Western Europe rather than return home.
Local media have said that direct flights connecting Belgrade and Tehran have been coming in full but returning empty.
