Re: How to receive documents from Europe to Iran?

What is wrong with DHL? I worked there at one point: we did a pretty good job. Occasionally lost a container in China but otherwise rather succesful. What about the Iranian postal services? Ask your local friends how they rate them. Look forward to reading what you did in the end so I can add it to ...

Re: anyone ever managed to get money back from iranianvisa.com ?

I will try to make the warnings more prominent.

I actually have the iranianvisa.com boss's business card in front of me here.

Re: Iran to Turkmenistan with own vehicle

Re: tourist visa

my question is: is it possible to obtain a 10 days tourist visa by only booking a 4 day tour, or will the tourist visa only be valid for the stated duration of the tour?

They said I shoul...

Hopefully someone else who is more knowledgeable will chime in. 1. I am quite sure it's the same, in the sense that you need a guarded escort. 2. I think ...
