Tehran, May 28, IRNA – An Iraqi top tourism official said on Saturday that the Iraqi embassy in Tehran issues some 6,000 visas for Iranian tourists every day.
Mahmoud Abdul-Jabbar al-Zubaidi, the head of the tourist department of Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, said that Iraq plans to provide more visa for tourists in the context of activating non-pilgrimage tourism.
Abdul-Jabbar, who was speaking during an Iran-Iraq joint meeting on tourism cooperation, said that ten Iranian private tour operators held consultations with ten Iraqi tour agencies in the meeting.
He said that the meeting is being held following an agreement in August 2015 between Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization.
The Iraqi official called for removing red tape on the way of travel between Iran and Iraq, saying it will help increase the current three million number of Iranian pilgrims visiting Iraq.
The Iraqi cabinet ministers and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi are determined to give a boost to the country's tourism industry so that it becomes Iraq's second source of revenue in the future, Abdul-Jabbar said.
