The agreement on the joint use of the Meghri-Nourduz Customs Corridor was signed in Yerevan back in 2016, with the aim of facilitating mutual trade and customs control between the two countries, ARKA news agency reported.
Under this agreement, if goods are inspected on one side of the border, there will be no need for a second and careful inspection on the other side.
The deal has already been approved by the Armenian government and Iranian Parliament.
Vice Chairman of the State Revenue Committee Vakhtang Mirumyan said the customs corridor between Armenia and Iran will ease road traffic.
“The launch of the joint gate and its operation means elimination of double control and procedures. The second part of the agreement clearly mentions the steps which facilitate the movement of goods via means of transport, as well as passenger transportation,” he was quoted as saying by Armenpress.
“Customs control is carried out by the country of entry,” he added.
