• The move is in line with plans to offer travel services through a single window to prevent confusion.

    Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization is in talks with the Central Bank of Iran to develop a mechanism within travel agencies whereby tourists' money could be exchanged. 
    According to Mohammad Moheb-Khodaei, tourism deputy at ICHHTO, the general principles of the plan have been outlined but the CBI requires firm guarantees and clearer procedures which are currently being worked out in cooperation with travel agents. 
    "In the new system, travel agencies will act as exchange shops for tourists and a system has been defined to prevent a black market," he told ISNA.
