list of visa on arrival countries

 As of Dec 2014 the following nationalities can NOT get Visa on Arrival: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Colombia, India, Iraq, Jordan, Pakistan, Somolia.

 Note: All USA, CANADA and UK passport holders must travel as a group with a registered guide through a registered travel agency to be allowed a visa to Iran.
The MFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) requires those traveling to have a guide from arrival point to departure, essentially this means you need to have a guide with you on a daily basis.

 Visa reference code (Authorization Number)

In order to apply and get a visa you must submit your passport details to an authorised Iranian travel or tour company. Once the agency receives your information, they apply online to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) to get your visa approval number. Your visa will then be processed and if approved an authorization number will be faxed to the Iranian embassy you nominated to have it picked up at. Your travel agent will then email you the Visa Reference Number "authorization number" you can then pick up your visa. The number they give you is just an "authorization code". The authorization number means that your visa has been approved by the MFA but it is not the visa itself. Normal processing time by the MFA is 10-14 working days and longer for passports from USA , CANADA and UK.

 Please note: the visa authorization number is valid only in the consulate you have asked for your visa to be issued in.


Collect your visa in Iranian embassy

After you receive your authorization number you can apply in person or by mail at the nominated embassy or consulate. The actual processing time depends on the embassy and can be from 1-5 days. A tourist visa is issued for a maximum stay of 30 days . The visa remains valid for a period of 3 months from the date of issue, so don’t pick it up too early before you plan to travel to Iran.
