Visa for Iran

Most of the time, Iran visitors can come free of the consideration of attending a visa for Iran. They can come to the airport or if they are having their tours to IRan by cruises, ships, car or train, on the entrance in Iran borders, officers issue the visa for them. Once you get off the flight you will walk down the hallway and come across the visa section directly in front of you in the main hall

You may have your visa issued in a very more similar way if you are having your trip to Iran as traveling in a group to Iran. As we already said in the related article, the hosting company that you are about to have your meetings with, can easily apply for your entry visa and send the documentation for you, you can have the printed copy with you and everything will be on its way

How about if you are from exceptional countries? Visitors to Iran must obtain a visa from one of the Iranian diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa-exempt countries or countries eligible for a visa on arrival.

Visa for Iran

Some points to remember:

  1. All visitors must hold a passport valid for at least 6 months.
  2. Admission is refused to women not wearing Islamic head cover, scarf, long sleeves and stockings.
  3. Confirmed itinerary, or at the very least your first few nights booked at a licensed hotel.
  4. Medical/travel insurance for Iran. (Note: Check with your travel insurance to see if Iran is covered.)
  5. Citizens of Israel are totally banned from entry to Iran.
  6. Dual citizens of both Iran and another country count as citizens of Iran when visiting, and must have an Iranian passport. Otherwise, they will need a visa for Iran if their first nationality is for those exceptional countries
  7. Holders of normal passports traveling as tourists can enter following Iran trade zones without considering any visa for Iran with a maximum stay of 2 weeks (extendable), as by December 2017:

The stunning, diverse and hospitable Middle Eastern country has been growing in popularity for tourists, and the government is now making it simpler for people to visit. The Iran visa on arrival now makes the process less of a headache, avoiding the tedious ‘letter of invitation’, authorization codes and embassy interviews that have been mandatory to acquire a visa for years. These days it is completely possible for people to book their trips to Iran without much prior preparation.

Considering all up mentioned, we guess that the consideration of the Islamic cover has the probability to make you doubt to start your trip to Iran. If so let us tell you frankly two points. First of all, nobody never ever has mugged even a little bit about using the beautiful scarfs when passing to some point in Iran. Because when you are relaxing in the natural parts of your trip to Iran you don’t have to care too much about your scarf, you’ll know, when you come.

But in any case that it bothered you, we suggest to read our article of a cultural trip to Iran, search in the net about Iranian girl, women society and the stories behind this kind of fashion then you will love putting the scarf on your hair if you’re a woman. We also recommend you to visit online markets of scarfs in Iranian pages of Instagram and order some of their beautiful ones. You can also buy them and bring them back with you as Iran souvenirs.

Finally, the magical parts of visiting Iran are that many, that you will not have enough time to even care about it and even if it still did, considering all we said, at the end of your trip to Iran, you will feel that it worth it.
