Arrival of Azeri tourists in Iran hits one-year high
Baku, The number of Azerbaijani tourists who visited Iran in the first nine-month of the current year increased by 53.2 percent, the Azeri state data shows.
The statistics released by government of the Republic of Azerbaijan suggest that 1.068 million Azeri citizens have visited Iran in the first nine months leading up to October; a figure that shows 53.2 percent increase compared to last year.
Iran is attractive to Azerbaijani tourists, as the country offers a range of medical services, while the country is home to natural and historical sites and religious cities.
Iran, after Georgia, is the main destination of Azerbaijani tourists but the depreciation of the Iranian currency Rial has also made traveling to the country much easier for the foreign tourists.
