"Some of [Iran's] citizens have abused visa exemption," said Stefanovic.

The visa exemption agreement between Iran and Serbia was signed in 2017.

Authorities have stated that a large number of Iranian citizens coming to Serbia as "tourists" and then attempted to travel to Western European countries or to seek asylum.
