Tour operators who spoke with Skift strongly disagree with the US State Department’s warning that Iran is not a safe travel destination, maintaining that Iran has proven to be a safe and remarkably hospitable place for travelers, including Americans. The biggest obstacle they see is the widespread misperception that the country is not safe or that visitors will be met with hostility.
According to the 2019 Travel Risk Map, launched by global risk experts International SOS in collaboration with Control Risks, Iran is as safe as a majority of European countries when it comes to travel security.
Decline in Outbound Tourism
A total of 1,759,749 Iranians traveled overseas in the quarter ending June 21, indicating a year-on-year decrease of 6.5%.
The devaluation of Iran's national currency rial against foreign currencies last year has had a dual effect. On the one hand, it led to a decline in the purchasing power of Iranians overseas. On the other, it has given a boost to the inbound tourism sector, as travelling to Iran has become cheaper for foreign holiday-goers.
