Iran Travel Bonus

The Iranian government is offering cash bonuses to the country's travel agencies to lure foreign tourists to the country.

The Iranian news agency reported that the Tourism and Cultural Heritage Organization will offer US$20 for every American or European tourist who visits the country with a US$10 offer for every Asian tourist.

Iran is looking to expand its tourist industry especially for visitors from the USA and Europe.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has come out against planned legislation to require US travelers to be fingerprinted at the nation's airports.

Is that so? Considering how impossible it is to get a tourist visa for Americans, seems that fixing THAT problem would increase the number of visitors. I have friends in Iran, and have been trying to visit them for a while, but was flat out told that as an American citizen, I need an porfessional invitation from a business, NOT from a private person.

So, I guess I am out of luck. Too bad, because I was planning to get a nose job while in Teheran.
