1. The Foreign Ministry held the 38th meeting of the passport policy deliberation commission’s subcommittee on passport use policy on January 11 to deliberate on whether to extend the travel bans on Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia and Afghanistan.
2. After the deliberation, the subcommittee, judging that the instability, poor public security situations and terrorism risks were likely to continue in the six countries for a considerable period of time, decided to keep in place the travel bans on them for another six months from February 1, 2019, till July 31, 2019.
