Iran to Open Tourism Office in Russia

Iran is going to open a tourism office in Moscow by March 2017 in reciprocation for the same Russian office in Tehran, an Iranian official announced.

Speaking to Tasnim, deputy head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHTO), Morteza Rahmani, said the Iranian office will be inaugurated in Moscow by next March.

He said the organization is now looking for a competent pick to be in charge of the “Visit Iran” office in Moscow, hoping to attract Russian travelers to Iranian tourist destinations.

Russia opened its tourism office in Tehran in February 2016, in a ceremony attended by Russian Ambassador to Iran Levan Dzhagaryan, Head of the Russian Government’s Federal Agency for Tourism Oleg Safonov, Chairman of the State Committee on Tourism of the Republic of Tatarstan Sergey Ivanov, and Dagestan’s Minister of Tourism Magomed Isayev.
