3. You will choose where you want to collect your Iranian visa.

4. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs typically issues the authorization code for your visa in at most ten days.

Please be aware that while your visa has been granted, this authorization number does not constitute the actual visa; you must receive the visa at the Iranian Embassy or Consulate you have chosen in your place of residency or at one of Iran's international airports. Please be aware that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has exclusive discretion over whether to grant your request for a visa and when to do so. This can cause a delay in the application process if they have any doubts about your application. Therefore, applying for your visa at least four weeks before your intended departure is advised.

E-Visa System in Iran

The Iranian ministry of foreign affairs has initiated a campaign to stop passports of visitors arriving in Iran from being stamped in an effort to alleviate tourists' worries about US restrictions on anyone visiting Iran. Iran will alleviate visitor concerns about visiting Iran due to US sanctions by preventing entrance and departure stamps from being placed on their passports. The Iranian police and foreign ministry have given their consent for this measure, and it has been carried out after receiving the ministerial council's approval. We can arrange this process for our partner tour operators in Europe or Asia if they want it to speed up the visa application process.

Iran Visa Application Online

Visitors are invited to apply for an Iranian visa for various reasons, including travel, relative visits, medical needs, business, and travel with valid passports or other forms of travel documentation. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran (MFA), almost all foreign people must have visas to enter Iran. This visa can be extended in Iran for a maximum of 30 additional days. The visa is still in effect three months after it was issued. The majority of consulates require a letter of authorization from Tehran's minister of foreign affairs. The most crucial phase of the visa application procedure is requesting this authorization, which may be done through Eavar Company. The relevant Iranian Embassies and Consulates will issue your visa following this process.

Iran Visa on Arrival (VOA)

Almost all nations can obtain an Iran VOA (Visa on Arrival) through one of Iran's international airports, according to the most recent regulations of the Iranian MFA (as of June 2019):

  • IKA: Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport
  • ISF: Isfahan International Airport
  • KIH: Kish International Airport
  • GSM: Qeshm International Airport
  • SYZ: Shiraz International Airport
  • TBZ: Tabriz International Airport
  • MHD: Mashhad International Airport
  • BND: Bandar Abbas International Airport
  • AWZ: Ahwaz Ahwaz International Airport
  • BUZ: Bushehr International Airport
  • LRR: Lar International Airport 

The following nationals are not eligible for the Iran VOA:

  • US
  • Canada
  • UK
  • Afghanistan
  • Iraq
  • Pakistan
  • Nepal
  • Colombia
  • Somalia
  • Jordan
  • Sri Lanka


  • If you are qualified for Iran VOA, you may quickly request that the authorities stamp your visa on a different piece of paper when you enter Iran through any international airport (not through land borders). Businesspeople who are concerned about US sanctions against Iran or those who often visit the US will find this to be of particular relevance. 
  • In an exceptional case, citizens of nine countries will still receive a sticker on their application's passport and a stamp at the entrance and departure points. The following are the names of the nine nations: the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Colombia, Bangladesh, and Jordan.
  • Iran visas cannot be obtained on arrival for journalists, politicians, or reporters on assignment. Iran only issues visas for tourists (ordinary passports) upon arrival. Application for this type of Iran visa is not permitted with official passports, diplomatic passports, etc.

Types of Iranian Visa

There are different types of Iranian visas:

  • Entry Visa (Type A)
  • Tourist Visa (Type B)

  • Temporary Work Visa (Type F)
  • Transit Visa (Type G)

  • Investment Visa (Type I)

Iranian Visa Requirements

If the visa is issued in advance by the consulate, the requirements are as below:

1. A passport that is valid for at least six months

2. The visa authorization code letter (visa grant notice)

3. Passport copy or image

4. 2 ID photos

5. Iran Visa application form

6. Flight ticket

If the visa is issued in one of the international airports in Iran, the requirements are as below:

1. Hotel booking document: You must, at the very least present a printed copy of your hotel reservation for your first night in Iran. Give the immigration police their contact information if you are staying with locals. Eavar will help you with the required documents.

2. Return flight ticket: Some people allege that their VOA was denied because they did not have access to their return trip, or the authorities could not reach their host or for some other reason.

3. Two 45 ID photos: Colored, full face, and white background.

4. Travel Insurance: All visitors to Iran are required to have valid travel insurance. If you still need to, you can make a purchase there. However, the insurance you purchase at the airport offers very little coverage, so having the right travel insurance is essential. Unfortunately, most international travel insurance providers do not offer coverage for Iran. We strongly advise you to pre-arrange Iranian travel insurance. Eavar can help you with the insurance.

5. Application form

6. Visa authorization code document: The most crucial document—your in-advance visa approval—is likely this notification of visa issuance. Although having visa permission for VOA is unnecessary, having one would ensure you get the visa. This implies that you may quickly secure your visa authorization before your travel to reduce the possibility of a denial at the airport and speed up the process of issuing visas.

7. Visa fee: Cash is the only acceptable form of payment, and only in (€) Euros. Although it depends on your country, rates typically range from 40 to 150 euros. EU citizens must pay a 75 € visa fee for Iran.
