Iran welcomed more than 4 million tourists by 2022

The United Nations World Tourism Organization estimates that 4.1 million travelers traveled to Iran in 2022, an increase of 315% over the previous year.

Iran (IMNA) - According to Financial Tribune, the massive increase in tourism may be partially linked to the broad relaxation of worldwide prophylactic measures implemented in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

The number, meanwhile, pales in contrast to 2019, which had 9.11 million visitors, the highest number of arrivals in recent years.

In accordance with UNWTO data, the pandemic and the imposition of sanctions against Iran are to blame for the decline in arrival trends that began after a record-breaking year in 2019 and continued through 2021.

Since the overall number of foreign visitor visits peaked at 1.46 billion in 2019, the rise in Iran really mirrors a global pattern. The population fell to 406.89 million in 2020, increased to 455.77 million the next year, and then increased again to 962.8 million the previous year.
