BAGHDAD (Mediamax)—People applying for Armenian citizenship in Iraq can receive their passports at the Armenian diplomatic mission.
The decision was approved at a government meeting on Thursday, Mediamax reports.
“The decision envisages making changes in the list of the countries whose citizens, by receiving Armenian citizenship, can get their passports not just in Armenia, but at the Armenian diplomatic mission in those countries. The list currently includes Syria and Lebanon. The draft decision proposed to add Iraq as well,” said Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia Shavarsh Kocharian.
According to him, it’s not the only privilege that the Armenian authorities are giving due to the situation in Iraq. “People receiving the Armenian citizenship will be exempt from fees for getting or exchanging a visa, residence permit, or passport.”
