We can contribute to the issuance of your Iran visa in coordination with the Visa Department in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (M.O.F.). After you fill in the requested information on the visa form (in two separate attachments for individual & group travelers), we transfer your visa application to M.O.F. This process takes 5-10 working days after sending the application form to the mentioned department.

Iran visa procedures for American, British, Canadian, and Australian citizens are longer, as it takes 35-45 working days. Your Visa Authorization as a reference number will be sent simultaneously to you and to the Iran consulate or embassy of the place to which you applied for an Iran visa. This Visa authorization is based on your application file at M.O.F., whereupon the Iranian Embassy will issue your visa.
Nevertheless, you have a free hand in planning & programming your entire travel itinerary.

Besides, we can help you plan your journey with the least amount of restrictions possible and will do our utmost to remain flexible according to your needs.
You need to make all of your travel arrangements including accommodation, domestic flights, and/or a private car and guide/driver throughout the trip in advance.

Visas can be collected at any Iranian consulate or Embassy (consulate section) around the world even in the Iranian interest section of the Pakistan Embassy in Washington DC. In the US.

Please note that you should inform us at the time of application in which country you wish to collect your visa.  Visa issuance for American, British, and Canadian passport holders is subject to particular regulations. For example, at the moment, the Iran Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not allow American/British/Canadian passport holders to travel to Iran independently.

Foreign tourist passports will not be stamped in Iran to ease entry rules and also to counter US bilateral sanctions against IRAN. The resumption of sanctions against Iran began in May 2018, when the US withdrew from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action known as the Iran nuclear agreement. One of the consequences of Trump’s sanctions against Iran is that those who travel to Iran might face some difficulties afterward. To reduce tourists’ concerns about US sanctions, the Iranian vice president announced that foreign tourist passports will not be stamped in Iran.
