Iran waives visa-stamping rules in bid to boost tourism

 Iranian media reported Thursday that the country has implemented a measure allowing officials to waive rules relating to stamping visas in foreigners’ passports.

The report by Seday-e Miras, a news website affiliated to the country’s tourism department, said the decision is aimed at increasing visits by tourists.

Since 2015, people who have traveled to Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen have faced restrictions when applying for visas to visit the United States.

In June, Former NATO chief Javier Solana’s online application to enter the US was rejected for having previously traveled to Iran.

Israel, along with other countries, has applied similar measures after Arab and Muslim countries have denied entry to travelers with Israel stamps in their passports.
