Visiting Iran Will Become Even Cheaper: MP
The cost of Iran travel before the end of the Iranian year (March 20), according to an Iranian legislator.
Member of the Iranian parliament Seyyed Hadi Roumiani said that by giving Iran’s cultural heritage, craft and tourism organization (ICHO) full control over the country’s tourist affairs, travel costs will be reduced and there will be less confusion.
The Iranian Parliament recently adopted a measure which gave the organization the sole supervisory function.
“Businesses in the tourism sector have yet to know who they have to answer, because a number of companies have had a say about how things should be done in the sector, but we’ve eliminated that now,” he told Tasnim.
The legislator said this will help “bring stability” and reduce confusion so I MEET measures to reduce travel expenses.
Roumiani said travel organizers do not have to get approval from various organizations to design a Reiseroute, such as “ICH-approved”. He argued that this allows operators to get the best tour packages they can at affordable prices since there is less bureaucracy.
The legislator said he expected ecotourism to be the first to see a visible drop in prices.
“A person should be able to travel with peace of mind and not worry about costs,” added Roumiani.
