US warns against traveling to Iran due to coronavirus, the risk of kidnapping, and the arbitrary arrest and detention of US citizens.


US citizens visiting or residing in Iran have been kidnapped, arrested, and detained on spurious charges, the US Department of State said.


Iranian authorities imprison US citizens, particularly dual national Iranian-Americans, unjustly on charges including espionage and posing a threat to national security, the department added.
