Question: I am planning on travelling to Iran this autumn to visit and stay with friends and their family (I am a Canadian citizen).I am wondering if you have any recent experience with getting a tourist visa through a host/friend/family in Iran? I'm debating whether to simply use www.uppersia.com to secure the tourist visa.
Answer: It is most recommended to ask a travel agent in Iran to apply for visa. But if you still insist in having a friend as a host, your friend should contact us (+98 (0)9177142602) to apply for your visa through s/he.
The process of Iran visa is: Fill in the visa form on http://www.uppersia.com/Iran-travel-services/iran-visa.html, it takes about 10 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.
