Passport/Visa Note

Visitors require a passport (must be valid at least six months after period of intended stay). Visitors must hold return an onward ticket, all documents required for next destination and sufficient funds. Some nationalities requiring a visa can obtain it on arrival provided the visit is for tourist purposes and for a maximum of 15 days. Immigration requires a photo and US$50 for the holder of the passport and U$10 for each of the companions (if any) to cover visa fees. Otherwise a 72-hour visa can be issued upon arrival, if a passenger has been introduced by means of a letter from a valid organization or government at least two days prior to arrival. The fee is US$30. The passenger must report to the police within eight days of arrival. Visitors should be aware that if their passport contains an Israeli stamp, or any evidence of an intended or past visit to Israel, entry into Iran will be refused even if in possession of a valid visa. Reporters, journalists, photographers and cameramen of any nationality, other than Iranian, require a visa. Admission will be refused to women not wearing Islamic head cover, scarf, long sleeves or stockings. It is highly recommended that passports have at least six months validity remaining after your intended date of departure from your travel destination. Immigration officials often apply different rules to those stated by travel agents and official sources.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
