Iran to see 8mn tourists in 2019/20 year

Some 8mn visitors have travelled to Iran since the start of the current Iranian year (March 21- Nov. 21) which is the same amount of last year, according to the Deputy Tourism Minister Vali Teymouri, Mehr News reported.

He made the remarks at Laleh Park Hotel on Monday, noting that last year Iran hosted 7.8mn travellers which in comparison to 2018 grew 52 per cent.

However, in the last 10 months of the current Iranian year (March 21- Nov. 21) more than 7.85mn people visited Iran which is the same amount of last year and we will have more visitors till the end of the year.

Tragic events occur all around the world, affecting tourism destination and Iran is not an exception, he said, adding that we have the international and local experience for managing these conditions.

According to Teymouri, Iran is an attractive and highly competitive tourism destination, capable of resolving difficulties swiftly. Currently, marketing procedures are underway and the industry is expected to resume its development before the next travelling season.
