Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari has said Iran will issue visas on arrival to citizens of all countries in Iranian airports except 9 ones including US and Britain.

Addressing his weekly press conference here in Tehran, the senior diplomat refrained from announcing the list of the excluded countries, but it is rumored that Canada, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, India and Colombia may be among the excluded countries.

Jaberi Ansari said the visas are being issued in a bid to bolster Iran's tourism industry now that sanctions have been lifted.

Insecurity or absence of diplomatic ties is the reason for the exclusion of the 9 countries.
