Bill to fingerprint US nationals entering Iran approved by Guardian Council

Tehran, Dec 2, IRNA-The Guardian Council on Saturday approved a bill passed by Majlis in November to fingerprint US nationals entering Iran.

Guardian Council spokesman Abbas-Ali Kadkhodaei told reporters that the council met on November 22 to discuss the bill and "found it neither against Islamic sharia (laws) or Constitution."

Now that the bill has become a law, all US nationals before entering the country at any of its entry points or when applying for visas must be fingerprinted as is done to Iranians wishing to enter US territory, the spokesman said.

The bill was approved on single urgency by Majlis in an open on November 19. It was approved by 135 votes in favor, 26 votes against and 10 abstaining.
