I have got a frozen ATPL license from South Africa and I'm from Iran. I came back home last year and I have converted my CPL/IR license to the Iranian piloting license by doing Air Law and Human Performance exams plus a skill test.
I'm willing to get the frozen ATPL license in Iran but I don't know what the rule is and if I can get it without doing the ATPL exams again.
I checked Annex 1 (Eleventh edition) but there wasn't anything about it. I assume both countries are following ICAO rules so I would appreciate it if someone helps me to know where or what the rule is.
