The officials, on condition of anonymity, said that, authorities are more than doubling the cost of entry visas for foreign visitors, starting next week.
They spoke on condition of anonymity, because they weren’t authorised to speak to the press.
Foreigners will have to pay 60 dollars per visa, up from 25 dollars and 70 for multiple entry visas.
They added that, banks and tour agencies received a notification from the Foreign Ministry, about the new price hike, which will go into effect on March 1st, AP reported.
If this happens, it might take a toll on the the country’s tourism sector, which is already struggling to get back to its past glory.
