Shamgen Visa Would Boost Regional Tourism: MP

Referring to the idea of Shamgen visa, Moayed Hosseini Sadr said each year about 15 million Iranians travel to Turkey and an outstanding percentage of the same people visit Iraq and Syria.

Hosseini Sadr told ICANA that if visa formalities are cancelled among the four mentioned countries, certainly the number of tourists visiting these countries would increase as well.

Iran, Turkey, Syria and Iraq have agreed on issuing joint visa, said Iranian deputy Vice President Ali Aghamohammadi.

"As offered by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, tourists can visit the four countries with the joint visa," Aghamohammadi said this week. The measure seeks to lessen tourists' expenses and facilitate tourism in the four countries.

Referring to the cultural and religious commonalities of Iran, Turkey, Syria and Iraq, Hosseini Sadr noted that enforcement of commonalities and preparing the ground for making complementary investments would no doubt turn the four countries into effective economic and political powers in the Middle East region.

The name of "Shamgen" has been proposed by Erdogan. Shamgen is named after "Sham" which is the classical Arabic name of Syria, he added.

Initial steps for realization of the idea between Iran and Syria are in their final stages and the two countries have offered their final acts to be approved in their parliaments.

Iran has taken actions towards Turkey and Iraq as well.
