Description - India-Chabahar (Iran)-Afghanistan Corridor.

The India-Chabahar (Iran) -Afghanistan Corridor connects India with Afghanistan through Iran (Chabahar), linking the ports on the west coast of India (Ports of Kandla and Mumbai) with the port of Chabahar. The road and rail links between Chabahar and the Afghan border are covered by the Transit Trade Agreement between India, Iran and Afghanistan.

In 2017, two containers were successfully transported by road from Mumbai (India) to Chabahar (Iran), crossing the Dogharoun border post in Afghanistan under the cover of the TIR Carnets (TIR Convention).

The journey lasted seven days in total: five by sea and two by road from the port of Chabahar in Iran to the final destination in Afghanistan. In comparison, the traditional route from the Port of Bandar Abbas in Iran is three to four days longer.

In addition, the corridor allows access to Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan (possibility of accessing China), the Kyrgyz Republic, Kazakhstan, Russia and Europe through the 7,200 km North-South Multimodal Transport Corridor.

Pakistan, Oman and the United Arab Emirates are also in the area of influence of the India-Chabahar (Iran) -Afghanistan Corridor.

The India-Chabahar (Iran) -Afghanistan Corridor connects with the New Silk Road
