Question: I would like to get a Visa in Mashhad Airport in my way to Turkmenistan. Is this possible in Mashhad? Are people successful in obtaining such visa in Mashhad Airport? I would also like to know what to expect in the Airport in terms of distance and ground transportation to Mashhad?
Answer: At the international airports including Mashhad a 30 days on arrival 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 a 30-day on arrival visa, you can easily 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 the form on the evisa website because usually this website doesn’t answer the requests. Or you can 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.
