Change is afoot in Iran, with the country currently preparing for a 'tsunami' of foreign tourists, the country's vice-president revealed yesterday.

The news comes as Iran and world powers are to begin implementing a landmark nuclear deal that will lift sanctions in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear program.

With improved relations, Iran's beaches, breathtaking Islamic architecture and incredible food could see the country be top of the 'must-visit' destinations of 2016.

Iran's vice-president, Masoud Soltanifar, said loosening visa rules are opening the door for the return of tourists

Masoud Soltanifar, who is also Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization chief, said President Hassan Rouhani's moderate policies and the easing of visa rules are opening the door for the return of foreign tourists to Iran.

A country rich in historical and cultural treasures, Iran will unveil an investment package of 1,300 projects in the coming days to attract foreign investment and boost the badly-hit tourism industry.

Iran is home to 19 Unesco-registered sites, including the ancient city of Bisotun.

Even before sanctions are lifted, the number of foreigners visiting Iran has grown 12 per cent in each of the past two years.

In 2014, Iran hosted over five million tourists, bringing in some $7.5 billion (£4.8 billion) in revenue.
