The United States imposed a travel ban and assets freeze on Zarif in July as part of its "maximum pressure" campaign against Iran but granted him a visa for the trip to the UN General Assembly in September.
Washington said it would decide whether to grant Zarif travel visas on a case-by-case basis. During his trip to New York in July he was only allowed to travel between John F. Kennedy airport, the UN headquarters, his country's UN mission and the residence of the Iranian envoy.
