Iran hosts 5.2 million foreign tourists in 9 months to Dec. 2018

About 5.2 million tourists travelled to Iran during the first eight months of the current Iranian year (March 21-Nov. 21) to register a 57% growth compared with last year’s corresponding period, the head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handcrafts and Tourism Organization said.

“The development of tourism infrastructure, considerable investments in tourism sector, issuance of electronic visa and visa waiver for target countries could be considered the main reasons for the growth in the number of foreign travelers,” Ali Asghar Mounesan was also quoted as saying by the organization’s website CHTN.ir earlier this month.

The official noted that the number is already higher than last year’s 5.1 million.
