Iran has also waived airport taxes and surcharges on travel tickets for passengers flying from Accra who transit in Bahgdad. With waived taxes, fares from Ghana to Iran visa Bahgdad cost below $600.

According to Iranian authorities, this is one of the many measures put in place to promote the country’s tourism.
