5,000 foreigners visited Afghanistan since political change

The Ministry of Information and Culture said that since the Islamic Emirate came to power, nearly 5,000 tourists from various countries have come to Afghanistan to visit ancient sites. Emphasizing the security of tourists, Muhajir Farahi, the deputy of the Ministry of Information and Culture, said that the Islamic Emirate has facilitated tourism in the country for foreign citizens. “Most of the tourists come to Afghanistan from foreign countries to visit ancient and historical areas,” he said. “Foreign tourists are very eager to visit Afghanistan, including possibly citizens from Britain. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has the responsibility to protect all those who are given visas and allowed to stay in Afghanistan,” said Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate. Some experts consider the arrival of tourists important for strengthening the country’s economy. “Today, the tourism industry is seen as a profitable business and a branch of the global economy. Alongside other economic values, tourists serve to increase liquidity in the country,” said Abdul Zahoor Madar, an economic expert. “The tourism industry is among the factors that help to better advance and create a kind of wealth generation for the economic system,” said Iraj Faqiri, another economic expert. This comes as previously some countries, including Britain, had advised their citizens not to travel to Afghanistan. However, recently, some British media, quoting from travel companies in the country, have said that there is currently an increase in demand for tourist trips to Afghanistan. tolonews
