Iran offers visa-on-arrival for tourists

The Government of Iran will issue visa-on-arrival facility for citizens of all countries except nine nations touching base at its air terminals, as per a representative for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said. Mr. Hossein Jaberi of the Ministry of Foreign Ministry said the choice was in accordance with arrangements to extend tourism in the nation.

Mr. Jaberi included that specific nations like the United States and Britain are exemptions to the prompt issuance of visas and will have to apply and be granted visas prior to the journey, including that the subtle elements of the arrangement and list of the nations prohibited will be made open later, as per the state news organizations.

Mr. Seyed Abbas Araqchi, the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs, had previously suggested that the Iranian Government will issue 30-day visa-on-arrival facility for foreign natives of 180 states upon entry. The nation’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization head Mr. Masoud Soltanifarhad said Iran wanted to expand income from tourism inside of the following 10 years to equivalent its oil income by 2025. He told local news offices that the nation anticipated that would have 20 million vacationers by 2025 through its vast number of historical and natural attractions. Foreign tourist migrants to the nation have apparently expanded 12 to 14 percent in the course of the most recent two years.

The news office went ahead to depict how more outside vacationers had touched base in the nation since an atomic arrangement in between Tehran and the Permanent UN Group of 5+ (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) came into power in January yet did not give numbers. Taking after the decision of Mr. Hassan Rouhani as Iranian president in 2013, Iran has looked for complementary visa waiver programs with a few nations as a feature of its offer to help tourism.
