At the end they accepted our apply but ordered many many papers ( a lot more than on their homepage). All in all...

Restriction also for cars / trucks entering Iran?

Hello everybody
As we meet some motocyclists that were rejected at the Iranian border, we like to know if there are also some overlanders by car / truck have been rejected or if this is only a rumor yet?
We plan the border crossing next week, coming from Turkey with our 7,5t truck.
