Iran Visa On Arrival

    Iran tourist visa on arrival

Iran visa on arrival (VOA) or Iran airport visa, refers to that kind of Iran tourist visa received by eligible nationals traveling to Iran for tourist purpose. Visa on arrival doesn’t mean that Iran is a visa-free country (It’s visa free only for a few countries). Iranian visa isn’t just a quick stamp in your passport, like in for instance Turkey.

The most popular reason why a lot of people don’t like visas on arrival is that they’re afraid that they might not be granted a visa. But, even with a visa, an immigration office might refuse you to enter the country (even in the US). Thankfully, Iran VOA is one of the easiest.

Visa for Iran can be issued in several Iranian airports and it is valid for 30 days.

Airport visa can only be extended if Iranian Foreign Affair Office finds it necessary. In that case, usually maximum 14 days’ extension is possible. If you’re planning on staying longer than 30 days, make sure to get your Iranian visa at the Embassy instead.

In order to get this visa, you still need to have the necessary documents and follow the procedure in the airport.
