Eddington-inspired Born–Infeld (EiBI) gravity is a recently proposed modified theory of gravity, based on the classic work of Eddington and Born–Infeld nonlinear electrodynamics. In this paper, we consider the possibility that wormhole geometries are sustained in EiBI gravity. We present the gravitational field equations for an anisotropic stress–energy tensor and consider the generic conditions, for the auxiliary metric, at the wormhole throat. In addition to this, we obtain an exact solution for an asymptotically flat wormhole.
