Chinese, Omani arrivals in Iran on rise under visa waiver agreements


TEHRAN – Iran’s tourist arrivals from China and Oman have been on the rise over the past couple of years, since the Islamic Republic abolished visa requirements for their nationals.

“Statistical studies show the numbers of Chinese and Omani nationals traveling to Iran have increased after the country implemented one-way visa cancellation treaties in [the Iranian calendar year] 1398 (started on March 2017),” ISNA quoted a tourism official as saying on Tuesday.

Iran’s spring tourist arrivals from China show a 57 percent increase compared to the same three-month period in 2017, Moslem Shojai said.
