The visa waiver program for Chinese tourists has gone into effect.
As per the terms of the visa waiver program, effective as of July 16, all citizens of the People’s Republic of China may stay in Iran for up to 21 days from the date of entry without having to apply for visa, Vali Teymouri, the deputy head of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, announced on Tuesday, IRNA reported.
On June 29, the Iranian Cabinet approved the no-visa policy for Chinese tourists visiting Iran. The decision was made to attract more foreign tourists to the country. 
However, it was a unilateral measure, i.e. Iranian tourists visiting China still need to obtain visas.
China is already the world’s largest outbound travel market and is set to grow further. In 2018, Chinese travelers made more than 150 million trips overseas.
