Iran visa regulations for chinese tourists

With more than 6 million Chinese tourist in Iran annually, Iran’s government has declared and executed the allowance for Chinese citizens to travel to Iran without a visa for 15 days for each entrance. The free entrance for Chinese tourists is along with the recent tourism development policies of Iran to attract more tourist by easing the visa process. Therefore, Iranian visa for Chinese no longer requires the 85 Euro visa fee as before. Free visa travel is an open arm from Iran tourism to Chinese travelers. After all, what’s better than saving the time and fee of an arrival visa after a long flight? This decision was made by President Hassan Rouhani’s cabinet on June 2019, while Iranians still need a visa to enter China.
