On 24 October, 2007, the US Treasury Department added Salami to its sanctions list.

On 12 April 2021, the Council of the European Union added 8 Iranian officials including Hossein Salami, to its list of human rights sanctions for their role in widespread and grave violations of the rights of Iranian citizens. According to the EU statement, Salami “took part in the sessions that resulted in the orders to use lethal force to suppress the November 2019 protests. Hossein Salami therefore bears responsibility for serious human rights violations in Iran.” As a result of these sanctions, Salami has been banned from entering the EU and his assets in the EU have been frozen.
