Iran attracts expatriates to promote tourism

Published on : Friday, November 24, 2017

indexOn the basis of a scheme planned by the Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Organization or the CHTHO to the Foreign Ministry, each Iranian settled in foreign countries will get a free airline ticket for home country against sending five foreign nationals to travel to the country.

 

Mehr reported that CHTHO Deputy Director Mohammad Moheb-Khodai also proposed the provision of incentives to fellow citizens who will be working as tourism marketers or tour operators.

 

In a recent meeting on November 15, he made the remarks with many Foreign Ministry officials and travel activists

 

“The Foreign Ministry is aimed to develop a database for influential Iranian expats and elites,” said Ali Asghar Mohammadi who supervises the department for the expatriates at the ministry, adding roughly around five million Iranians based all over the world.

 

It is important to form a dedicated team that would divulge the obstacle with the plan over the distance in terms of traveling time that takes place upon arrival in the country, Mohammadi explained.

 

First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri in May described Iranians in foreign countries as “precious opportunities” for Iran, saying, “In terms of knowledge, they have occupied lofty ranks in the world. Also, in terms of money, they are very powerful and can help most sectors in the country.”

 

Over 360,200 expatriate Iranians came to the country as sightseers in the first three months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21–June 21), CHTHO announced.
