Visa waiver, the prospect of getting away from a single-industry economy

In 1993, the Cabinet of Ministers approved, pursuant to Article 2 of the Executive Regulations on the Issuance of Visas for Foreigners in Commercial Free Trade Zones, and passed the resolution to the Supreme Council of the Free Zone on May 1, 1994, under No. 16447 / T.252. Article 2 This Act is as follows:
“Foreign nationals will not be required to acquire visas for direct entry into areas through the entry and exit zones of the permitted regions.” The provisions of this bill are clear and transparent, however, the law that was previously implemented in free zones of Kish and Anzali, Due to the lack of infrastructure, was not in operation in Arvand Free Zone, fortunately, this problem has now been resolved, and we will witness a boom in the tourism and economy in this region.
Obviously, the goal of the current Government and the Supreme Council of the Free Zones of Iran is to grant such a concession, and due to the history of Abadan and Khorramshahr cities in terms of damage caused by 8 years of imposed war and destruction, their desire is development and the return of economic prosperity and improving the business environment in these two cities.
In the world today, tourism is one of the most important economic issues in terms of earning foreign exchange, creating employment and achieving sustainable development. Looking at the neighboring countries, for example Emirates, its significance is obvious. In addition, it is a very important tool to achieve sustainable development and keeping distance from the oil single-industry economy.
On the other hand, with the arrival of foreign tourists and cultural exchanges, definitely the dominant culture in terms of influence will be the culture of the Persian land (Iran), which, with its rich historical and Islamic backbone, will attract foreigners and, in this regard, Will play a role in the political and social development of our country.
