In the first 11 months of the previous Iranian year (March 21, 2018-March 20, 2019), 7.12 million tourists visited Iran, an official with the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization of Iran Vali Teymouri said, Trend reports via IRNA.

Each foreign tourist spent on average $1,400 in Iran, Teymouri said.

Taking the devaluation into account, Iran can be considered one of the best and cheapest countries for tourists to visit.

He noted that the current statistics do not cover the 12th, the last, month of the previous Iranian year.

The visit of each foreign tourist to Iran brings more profit to the country than 20 barrels of crude oil.
