Iran visa on arrival
What do you need for Iran visa on arrival? Surely a valid passport with at least 6-month validity. Two passport size photo to be attached to the Iran visa application form.
Recently visa officers are using a digital camera to take the needed pictures but still, having your own pictures make the process easier and faster.
Confirmed return ticket would be a peace of mind. It would be better to have your return ticket reservation at the first point.
Travel/medical insurance to get your visa for Iran (does not matter what kind of visa) is needed to be accepted at the time of issuing your visa. It’s necessary that your insurance is valid for Iran.
How much will it cost you?
Visa fee in cash which is payable to the Iran Visa & passport office at the airport depending on the applicant’s nationality between 75-150 euros.
Remember, since the credit cards are not usable in Iran up to now, you HAVE TO BRING ENOUGH CASH FOR THE WHOLE LENGTH OF YOUR TRIP. Dollars, Euros or any other kind of valid currencies in Europe and Asia will be fine for exchange shops in Iran.
What other documents are needed?
On a case by case bases sometimes an invitation letter or hotel reservation (hostel in Iran reservation) voucher is asked for.
You can ask for an invitation letter from an Iranian travel agency or friend to be confirmed at Iran Ministry of Foreign Affairs at least 48 hours before your arrival to Iran airport (It’s pretty easy), or simply show your hostel reservation or voucher to the officer.
You don’t need to have a reservation confirmation for the whole length of your trip. The first 2-3 days of your trip will be sufficient.
