This fact was further confirmed by, Zarif mentioned on Friday during his visit to Isfahan, which known to be the most popular tourist spot in central Iran attracting many travelers annually.
The official statement
The highest diplomat mentioned that Iran has negotiated this offer with many nations including, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Bolivia, Egypt and Syria. Now the citizens from these countries will be allowed to visit Iran for a period of 15 to 90 days either without a visa or by giving the visa on arrival. The countries diplomacy equipment is willing to do anything in its power to facilitate the growth of Iran’s tourism sector.
However, in the case of Turkey this privilege has been denied owing to the Non Aligned Movement. The decision has raised a lot of concern as a large number of tourists had visited Iran in the year 2011. This decision may completely remove the future possibility of such visits.
The expected benefit from this scheme
Intelligence officers in Iran have additionally authorized a plan to expand the record to comprise 12 more states, but this move has been severely criticized claiming that it should be a reciprocal offer. Consistent with the Visa Restrictions Index, holders of an Iranian passport can visit as many as 40 international locations visa-free or with visa on arrival. The observers also hope that the nuclear contract between Iran and the P5+1 – Russia, China, France, Britain, the United States of America and Germany on the 14 of July would greatly improve the Islamic Republic’s tourism sector and increase needs for Iranian visas.
