Last month France declared wearing Burqa in public places could lead to heavy fines even for the tourists. Those wearing veil could face fine of $214 and could be forced to take French citizenship classes.
The decision has not gone well with the Muslim community in France and other Muslim nations around the world. veil ban could create a backlash from the Middle East countries tourist.
France is the second most popular destination for Middle East tourists. France is also heavily relied on the Middle East tourists. Luxury hotels in Paris heavily depends on the Middle East tourists.
The impact of the burqa ban could be severe on the France tourism industry. Gulf tourists may very well decide to snub France especially the ones who see burqa ban as a very sensitive issue.
