Postby steven » Thu Jan 12, 2017 6:45 am

Iran has started issuing E-visas since the start of 2017. All your questions and experiences with this new system are welcome in this thread.

Thanks for this good news!

Before trying to apply through the Iranian site for envisaged, do you know if it works for overland trips with our own car?

NOT an e-visa, just an electronic application form akin to that in Uzbekistan, with a dedicated e-mail address for communication.

You can even use the system when applying for a student or work visa

CrazyDre,

this means you still need to get the visa authorisation code and go to the embassy to pick up your visa, I assume. But do you also still need to go to apply? I think this is the step they are cutting with this system, correct?

As far as I understand, you apply for the authorisation code through the form - the site also provides a separate link for those that already have it. You do need to send all documentation to the embassy (whether you can do it by regular mail probably depends on the embassy) and possibly (but not necessarily) attend an interview.

In short, this is by no means a convenient alternative to VOA (which, admittedly, not everyone is eligible for)

But basically, you no longer need a travel agent to apply for the authorisation code for you. Is that right?
