What Is the Theme of World Tourism Day 2021?

World Tourism Day is celebrated every year on September 27 to raise awareness of the social, cultural, political, and economic values ​​of the tourism industry and its contribution to achieving sustainable development goals.
In the last two years, the coronavirus pandemic has had a widespread social and economic impact and has damaged countries’ economies. Meanwhile, the marginalized and vulnerable groups have suffered the most.

The resumption of tourism after COVID will help improve and grow, and everyone must enjoy its benefits broadly and fairly.

Therefore, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has chosen the slogan “Tourism for Inclusive Growth” as the theme of World Tourism Day in 2021.
This approach is an opportunity to look beyond tourism statistics and acknowledge that there is a person behind every statistic. Also, The World Tourism Organization has invited its member countries, sister UN agencies, businesses, and individuals to help ensure that no one is left behind after the resumption of tourism.

Iran's Borders Will be Reopened for International Tourists

Iran’s Deputy Minister of Tourism announced: The issuance of Iranian tourist visas for foreign tourists will be resumed from mid-summer 2021, following initial agreements.

Since last year, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Iran’s borders have been closed to foreign tourists, and tourist visas have not been issued. Therefore, during this period, only medical and business visas of Iran were issued to applicants.
But now, following the initial agreements between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Interior, and Health, Iran’s borders will be reopened to international tourists this summer. Consequently, the issuance of Iranian tourist visas will resume after the final preparation and approval of travel regulations and protocols.
Of course, due to the new conditions, and for the tourists’ health sake and to prevent the spread of Corona, the protocol and rules of travel to Iran will be amended and updated.
