Saeid Pour-Abolqassem added that the registration will continue until May 10.The details of the facilities for digital publishers have yet to be announced, he noted.

Foreign publishers began their registration as of April 4, and continued until April 9. Publishers could participate in the Arabic or English sections of the book fair.

Iranian representatives of foreign publishers, in addition to presenting a letter of representation or a valid sales permit from foreign publishers, must have a publishing license from the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.

Due to limitations imposed by COVID-19, the 33rd edition of the book fair will be held in both physical and online formats. Foreign publishers are only allowed online sales through the fair’s website if they participate in a physical format, while domestic publishers may choose not to physically attend the fair.

For attending the book fair, foreign books must have been published after 2018.

The book fair is slated to be held from May 11 to 21.
