56% Rise in Iran Tourist Arrivals

Sunday, December 2, 2018 - 09:25

The number of foreigners travelled to Iran during the seven months to October 22, shows a growth of 56% in total number of foreign visitors compared with the same period last year.

According to the head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicraft and Tourism Organization, Ali Asghar Mounesan stated that “Despite all the externals restrictions, mostly from the US, we have managed to attract more foreign travelers to the country…we expect to see higher growth in inbound tourism in the coming months.”

The official put the lower costs of Iran travel packages as a key factor in making the country more attractive for foreigners. The sharp decline in the value of the national currency in recent months seems to be an opportunity for fostering the promising industry of tourism in Iran.
