Visa Services for Independent Travelers

persiaguide assists you in your application. If you intend to visit Iran as an independent traveler you will need a Visa stamped in your passport by the Iranian Consulate. To apply for a Visa you must first have an Authorization Number from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Iran, which we can obtain for you.

We offer Iranian visa services for all nationalities. Americans. US, UK and Canadian citizens are required to be accompanied by a national guide.

Note: since March 2014 British passport holders require either to join a package tour or have a national guide for their entire trip in Iran in order to obtain visa. This rule also applies for Canadian and US passport holders.

Note: As of January 2016, US policy (subject to change) has stated that anyone wishing to travel to or via the USA is required to apply for a US visa (rather than an ESTA) if they have travelled to Iran since March 2011. The process is fairly straightforward. It is just something you will need to be aware of, if you have future plans to travel to or via the US. The US visa when issued is normally valid for 10 years so you will not need to reapply for a further visa for subsequent visits during that 10 year period.

Note: Due to the Iranian new year holidays, the visa application will be accepted until 2nd March so those travellers who are travelling in April must submit the visa application by 2nd March.

As well as Iranian visa services, we offer visa services for Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan.
