Tourist Visa to Iran has a simple procedure. Approved Iranian
travel agents can apply and get visa for all foreign nationals
(except Israeli passport holders)
At present the Iranian Foreign Ministry does not allow
American passport holders to travel to Iran independently.
Americans are required to travel on escorted tours; either as
part of a tour group, or a tailor made individual tour. An exact
itinerary, to which you must adhere, is compulsory.
In order to apply and get your visa
you must contact to an approved Iranian travel agent . After
receiving your personal data , they apply to the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs. Your visa will then be authorized by the MFA and faxed
to the Iranian Consulate near you. Your travel agent give you
a visa authorization number with which you can
refer to the consulate to get your visa. The visa authorization
number, however, is valid only in the consulate you have asked
them your visa to be issued in. The number they give you
is just an "authorization". This reference number means that your
visa has been authorized and approved by the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs but it is not the visa itself.
After your travel agent announce
you the visa authorization number you should first get a visa
application form from the consulate and follow the requirements
of the application form (you may either personally go to the consulate
to get the application forms or - if the service available - download
it from the web site of the Iranian embassy in your country).
Then you should refer to the consulate to lodge your passports
and application forms with the visa number they gave you (it can
be either a physical presence or by post). Then it might take
from one to five days for the consulate to issue your visa.
Normally, all tourist visas issued by Iranian consulates have
a "3-month" validity. The visa allows you to
stay in Iran for up to 30 days, although the
duration of your visa is at the discretion of the Iranian Foreign
