Kish is a 91.5-square-kilometre resort island in Bandar Lengeh County, Hormozg─ün Province, off the southern coast of Iran in the Persian Gulf. Owing to its free trade zone status, the island is touted as a consumer's paradise, with numerous malls, shopping centres, tourist attractions, and resort hotels. It has an estimated population of almost 40,000 residents and about 1 million visitors annually. Kish Island is one of the most-visited vacation destinations in the Middle East. Kish International Airport is built in the center on an elevated area 35–40 m above sea level.

As ICSD has already agreed and based on religion beliefs, Iran will host both World Deaf Karate and Taekwondo Championships for Men and Women separately and all team members should observe religion codes and women athletes and women officials should cover their hair in public during their stay in our country.
