Apply Iran Visa

Steps to Get Your Iran Tourist Visa?

To get your Iran Tourist Visa, you need to provide required documents below and do the Iran Visa application procedures issued by the Ministry Of Foreign Affair and last but not least complete the Iran Visa Application Form.

Iran Tourist Visa is a visa for all interested individual or group travelers to travel Iran.

Required Documents

  • Visa application (online or paper).
  • Passport with at least 6 month validity and two blank pages
  • Three recent photos (3×4 or 4×6)..
  • Visa fee payment.
  • Return envelope along with address and enough prepaid postage to cover of registered mail.


  • Tourist visa has 30 days maximum stay with extension possibility in Iran.
  • Tourist visa is three month valid from issuance date.
  • Tourist visa extension is done by Passport Police Department of Foreign Aliens Affairs.
  • If you have plenty of time before you intend to travel (at least 8 weeks), you can apply for a visa by contacting your nearest Iranian Embassy.

    You can use Apply Iran Visa (AIV) to take care of all the details and get your visa for you.

    To apply independently you need to contact the Iranian Embassy nearest to where you live and ask for/download a visa application form. Next, you will need to obtain a Letter of Invitation from a sponsor in Iran. For Tourist Visas, the sponsor will normally be a tour operator or a hotel.

    Once you have your Letter of Invitation you need to send this to your nearest Embassy along with your visa application form, two photographs, and the appropriate visa application fee. The Embassy will then send details of your application to the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) in Tehran.

    Once your visa has been authorized by the MFA, a visa authorization number will be sent back to the Embassy. The Embassy will then contact you and tell you your visa authorization number. Please note that this reference number means that your visa has been authorized but is not the visa itself.

    To obtain the actual visa in your passport, you need to fill out a visa collection form which you obtain/download from the Embassy. On this form you enter your visa authorization number.
    You can then either post or take this form to the Consulate Section of the embassy along with your passport and the appropriate visa collection fee. Your passport must be valid for at least six months from your date of entry into Iran, and must have at least two blank pages.

    If take your passport to the consulate in person, you will normally have to return the following day to get your passport back. If you post your passport to the consulate, either there will be an extra fee to cover the costs of them sending it back to you recorded delivery, or you will have to provide a stamped, self-addressed envelope. You should normally receive your passport back about one week from when the consulate first receives it.

  • Iran has a visa validity of 17 days so getting a tourist visa to Iran is a simple procedure. Approved Iranian travel agents can apply and get visa for all foreign nationals (except Israeli passport holders). The Iranian Foreign Ministry does not allow US passport holders to travel to Iran independently. US citizens are required to travel on tours, either as part of a tour group, or a tailor made individual tour. An exact itinerary, to which you must adhere, is compulsory.
    To apply and get your visa you must contact an approved Iranian travel agent. After receiving your personal data, they apply to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Your visa will then be authorized by the MFA and faxed to the Iranian Consulate near you. Your travel agent gives you a visa authorization number with which you can refer to the consulate to get your visa. The visa authorization number, however, is valid only in the consulate you have asked them your visa to be issued in. The number they give you is just an "authorization". This reference number means that your visa has been authorized and approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs but is not the visa itself.
    Depending on your nationality, you may be required to present at the Iranian consulate in your country to have your fingerprints taken. British and American passport holders will be fingerprinted upon arrival.
    After your travel agent tells you your visa authorization number you should first get a visa application form from the consulate and follow the requirements of the application form (you may either personally go to the consulate to get the application forms or, if the service available, download it from the web site of the Iranian embassy in your country). Then, you should refer to the consulate to lodge your passports and application forms with the visa number they gave you (it can be either a physical presence or by post). Then it might take from 1-5 days for the consulate to issue your visa .
    You may also need to provide a letter of recommendation from your embassy if you are applying outside your home country, a photocopy of your air tickets in and out of Iran and any student or press card .
    Normally, all tourist visas issued by Iranian consulates have a 3-month validity. The visa allows you to stay in Iran for up to 30 days, although the duration of your visa is at the discretion of the Iranian Foreign Ministry.
    Rarely, you may be asked to provide a letter from your employer or proof of fund. Visas are generally valid for three months that is you must enter Iran within three months of issue. Depending on your nationality, issuing a visa may take 30 days or more.




    Fortunately in the present society it is now acceptable that men and women will
    likely change careers and jobs a few times before they finally find something that
    they enjoy, something that they are fantastic at and so are thrilled to make an appearance to 5 days a week.

    The three basic colors useful for reproduction are cyan, magenta and yellow.

    Depending on the size and scope with the organization,
    these improvements can yield significant ROI.

    It's especially hard if you are like you are the only teacher in your school to use fitting technology into the planning and classroom
    delivery. Make any final announcements (as an example, the subsequent webinar in a series).
    It was foreseen that the amount of 3D printers in homes
    and business establishments will increase rapidly.

    Fortunately in the current society it's now acceptable that men and women will most likely change careers and jobs two or three times before
    they serve them with something that they love, something
    that they are good at and therefore are pleased to show
    up to 5 days a week. And thanks to some retrofit technology that's in route, it's effectively yesterday.
    Roughly equal amounts in the three primary colors give rise for the perception of white.
