Question: I booked a flight to Kish Island and was planning to chill out a few days before exploring the more interesting parts of the country I was wondering wheather this could lead to any difficulties because of Kish beeing excluded from the Visa obligation. I´m not sure if my Visa will expire when I leave the main land for the Island?
