My own positive experience in obtaining a visa authorisation code was with Pars Tourist www.key2persia.com
We are looking into the cost of Iranian visas for our trip - and they seem very expensive! Am I right in thinking that there are two fees - the one you pay a company to get you the code number, and the one you pay for the visa - currently £150 for British citizens? It seems insanely expensive!
Me and my girlfriend are planning a 10 day trip to Iran in Easter 2017. We were planning on buying the Lonely Planet guidebook until we noticed that it was published over four years ago - in 2012!
Are there any other guidebooks that you would recommend?
Could anybody comment on the credit card and ATMs situation in Iran, now that sanctions have been lifted?
I would not like to walk around with large amounts on cash money, and I find it difficult to estimate in advance how much money I will spend in Iran.
Thanks in advance!
I'm going to Iran for 2 weeks in October and I'm trying to book a hotel online for the first couple of nights i.e. just emailing directly. I've been doing this for a week now and I've heard nothing back from any of the places I've tried.
Has anyone had this problem before? Or is there a specific central site I need to book through? I'm also emailing some of the LP recommended ones
For sure this is not the first question about the VISA in Iran, but Im going to try again..
Does anybody know the situation about VISA ON ARRIVAL at the moment? Some people and websites says its possible to get 30 days now at the airports, but some are saying that its still just 15.
Im flying to Mashhad as well, is it the same rules about the VISA there like at the AirPort in Teheran?
I am travelling to Iran in December and only just found out about their access to particular websites. I know absolutely NOTHING about VPN, could someone explain to me what I need to do and which software I should get? I am only taking my phone (iPhone SE) and want access to Facebook and Google. I am Australian but will be in Georgia and Armenia beforehand. Any advice is good, I have no idea how VPN works or what it really is. Can I use it on my phone?
An Iranianian visa will be glued in your passport. I have read that such a visa will prevent me from using the Visa Waiver Program when traveling into the US. Is that true? The cost of a regular US visa is more than twice the price of a new passport, and the procedure is cumbetsome. But will it help to get a new passport?
Are there other countries where I will have trouble entering due to my Iranian visa?
I am a Dutch citizen (no Iranian background)
