Iran tour and travel Questions and answers FAQ

Read questions and comments who have made by people on the web on traveling to Iran and the answers Uppersia have provided for them. If you want an updated answer for some of the older questions, please fill out the form that is below the article and we will update the answer. You can choose the questions from the drop down menu on top of the page.

Question: I am trying to figure out what the 'real story' is with Iran visa especially VOA these days. Have you extended your visa quite recently since late June?

 

Answer: For the visa to Iran you have three ways:
1. Fill in the visa form on Iran visa application, it takes about 3-7 working days to get your reference number and two working days to collect your visa at the embassy by direct referral or one working week by posting the docs to the embassy. You can pay the visa fee in cash in Iran.
2. Fly to Iran and get a 30-day on arrival visa at the airport. This kind of visa is issued for 98 nationalities excluding USA, England, Canada, Colombia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, Bangladesh, and Somalia. If your nationality is among the countries authorized to get it, you can collect your visa against offering your passport, a passport-size photo and about 10-150€ to the staff at the airport. There is no need to fill in any form beforehand.
3. Refer to the Iranian embassy in your country and ask for a visa to be issued for you. Usually this way takes longer time about 30 days so it is not suggested. By the way, some of the embassies ask for an invitation letter, in this case you have to use the first option.

Question: Is it allowed to have successful entry into Iran or visa application with Israeli stamp in your passport?

Answer: Due to the rules dominating over Iran, entry to Iran will be refused for citizens of Israel and travelers with any evidence of visiting Israel. Israel is the only county included in this rule and other countries even America are excluded.

 You should change your passport and then apply for your visa in these three ways:

1. Fill in the visa form on Iran visa application, it takes about 3-7 working days to get your reference number and two working days to collect your visa at the embassy by direct referral or one working week by posting the docs to the embassy. You can pay the visa fee in cash in Iran.

2. Fly to Iran and get a 30-day on arrival visa at the airport. This kind of visa is issued for 98 nationalities excluding USA, England, Canada, Colombia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, Bangladesh, and Somalia. If your nationality is among the countries authorized to get it, you can easily collect you visa against offering your passport, a passport-size photo and about 10-150€(depends on the nationality) to the staff at the airport. There is no need to fill in any form beforehand.

3. Refer to the Iranian embassy in your country and ask for a visa to be issued for you. Usually this way takes longer time about 30 days.

Question: I'd like to ask is there any problem on taking photos in iran. I know that you must not take a photo of government buildings. What about the mosques and other religious buildings, people, etc.

 

Answer: You should take care not to take photos of the sensitive areas in Iran such as the military bases, governmental offices, airfields, airports and other sensitive areas where photography is forbidden. Most of the holy shrines in Iran do not allow photography. So it is better to look for sign or ask the staff before taking photos.
Ask for permission before taking photos of other people, just be respectful and discreet.

Question: I need to transfer money to my travel agent in Iran but the bank account is in Dubai and I have been asked not to mention their name when I do the transfer as they won't be able to get the money due to embargoes. Is this normal?

 

Answer: Because of EU and US massive banking sanctions on Iran, it is quite common and true that many Iranian businesses and government entities and also individuals have bank accounts in euro and $ in Dubai, or Germany, or South East Asia!
If it is clear on the transfer form that the recipient is an Iranian company they may refuse the transaction. Don't mention that the final recipient is in Iran or to an Iranian company, no matter what country that company may be based in.
By the way, you can pay us in cash as soon as arriving to Iran.

Question: I am an American citizen and will be traveling on my US passport. Currently, is the airport security in Iran searching everyone's drugs? Do I need to bring my drugs in their original containers? I want to put all my pills in a plastic bag to save space; do you think this is wise? Most of my drugs are "over the counter", like vitamins, sleeping pills, herbal medicines, antacids, cold meds, aspirin, stuff like that.

  

Answer: Try to bring your medicine in its original box with the original label to Iran. It is also suggested to ask an Iranian on board to write you a note in Farsi in which he or she would inform airport immigration of medications you are bringing along.
