Question: I remember reading about recent crackdowns on women wearing boots over their trousers in winter...is it actually enforced?Will it be offensive/will I get in trouble if I do it?


Answer: The female tourist in Iran has to cover their hair appropriately. They should also wear loose fitting garments which cover arms and legs up to at least the knee area over pants and a scarf in the summer, and a full-length woolen coat and scarf in the winter (calf-length is acceptable if worn over pants). Sandals, flip flops without socks or boots over trousers are acceptable and make no problem.

Question: I am an Indian passport holder resident in Ireland.I am flying from Dublin (Ireland ) to Tehran (Iran). From what it seems, I think I may not have to apply for a visa in advance and get it at the airport itself in Tehran by paying 50 bucks? Is that correct? I read somewhere that the airline may deny boarding at the origin airport if they dont find a visa on my passport.  

 

Answer: Yes you can 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€(depends on the nationality) to the staff at the airport. There is no need to fill in any form beforehand.
But the best option is to fill in the visa form on Iran visa application, it takes about 3-7working 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.

Question: I am holding Canadian Passport. What I understand is that I have to apply visa number through this travel agent www.uppersia.com. Will Iranian Embassy in Istambul accept applicant who is not resident of Turkey?

 

Answer:The Canadian  visitors of Iran should take part in a tour and be accompanied by a tour guide to travel in Iran and accommodate in the hotels.
In the visa application form the MFA should be informed about the hotels and itinerary in Iran. After having the reference number, the visa can be collected in two working days by direct referral or in one working week by posting the docs to the Iran embassy.
You should hire your guide or take the tour from the agency which applies for your visa. Moreover, the same agency should book your hotel as well, so it is better to take your all inclusive tour from that particular tour operator.

Question: 1. What is better to travel in Iran - Bus or Train? What is the average fare for either? I think I would mostly be using nightly buses between cities. I know that patrol is cheap in Iran but for planning purposes I have to make a rough estimate of cost.
2. I'm quite concerned about the Quetta - Zahidan travel. Any input in terms of timings and fares would be very helpful.
3. What is an average meal cost in iran? I plan to eat light since I would be on the road a lot of time but again I wouldn't wanna miss local delicacies.

 

Answer: 1. Of course train is better but is not available for all the destinations so then you can use bus instead. The bus rates are between 5-15 $ depending on the distance and trains are between 2-35 $.
2. Mirjaveh is a locality in eastern Iran on the border with Pakistan. It is the main road crossing point between Iran and Pakistan. The Pakistani border post is at Taftan. Mirjaveh is also the point where the railway line from Pakistan crosses the border on the way from Quetta to Zahedan. The border immigration opens in the Pakistan side around 9am. There is a gate only on the Iranian side.
3. You can buy fast foods at 1-6 $ and dine in the middle class restaurants at about 4-8 $.
