Armenia has suspended entry of most travelers from Iran and has also suspended its visa waiver program for citizens of Iran and China. Armenian citizens are permitted to enter Armenia from Iran after health screening. The country is conducting symptom checks for all travelers entering the country and requesting travelers from affected areas to complete health questionnaires. Individuals who have recently traveled to affected areas in other countries, including China, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Japan, Spain, and South Korea, may be asked to self-monitor or self-quarantine for 14 days. Travelers arriving in Armenia are asked to report symptoms of fever, cough, or difficulty breathing to the Ministry of Health or National Center for Disease Control. Individuals exhibiting fever may be hospitalized for a further health assessment. All the rest in terms of performing the WHO and MOH instructions are followed. The educational institutions are closed until April 14, and a State of Emergency has been declared from March 16 by the decision of the Government, that was approved by the National Assembly. Strict Emergency rules have been introduced on March 24. Updated July 31, 2020.
