Also, many are already speculating that once Iran and the P5+1 group of countries manage to reach a final deal over the Iranian nuclear energy program, a tsunami of tourists will start to flow to the country.  
Iran and the P5+1 – the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany – are in final stages of talks over a much-awaited nuclear deal that envisages the removal of certain sanctions against Iran in return for the country’s steps to restrict certain aspects of its nuclear energy activities.
