Re: Overstay Iran

Hello, my visa expires on December 2nd and I have an idea to go to the airport that day in the evening, go through the passport control and fly the next day at around 4am. Do you think I might get into any troubles by overstaying in Iran for these few hours?

Re: Overstay Iran

Good evening, Does anyone know how the authorities are dealing with overstay at the moment? It seem like in the past you could get into serious trouble when overstaying or just had to pay a fine when leaving the country. At the website from the german ministry of foreign affairs it is written that ...

Re: Visa on arrival in Iran: Reports and Q&A

Telling him that you planned to stay with Iranian friends and naming them seems like a great way to get those friends in trouble with the authorities. Unfortunately, you might be right but I wasn't aware of it before coming. Even my host said he did this multiple times for his previous guests and h...

Re: Visa on arrival in Iran: Reports and Q&A

On 15-11-2019 at around 3am I've attempted to get a VOA at the international airport in Tehran asking for 4-5 weeks and after 4h of waiting I got only 1 week with no extension possibility. The officer was giving me several reasons for that, however, I didn't find many of them very convincing. The ma...

The entrance to the police office is located here: 27.190202, 56.326084 (watch out, the localization suggested in the "Iran visa extensions" text is wrong by 40...

Re: Report on Iran Visa extension in Qeshm

So I have tried to extend my visa again in Qeshm in the beginning of March but it didn't work out. My strong recommendation: do it in Bandar Abbas unless you have a very good reason to do it in Qeshm. It seems to be a lottery now and it might take days until you get the visa (_if_ you get one). This...

Re: Report on Iran Visa extension in Qeshm

For those how enter Iran by car or motorcycle or bike it is not possible to extend visa in Qeshm Island. That is clearly not true as the previous poster just pointed out. I have entered Iran by plane so apparently it is possible only in this case. And I guess the "rules" may vary in time and depend...

Report on Iran Visa extension in Qeshm

It is possible to get a visa extension in Qeshm. You can do it in the Police Office for Foreigners (26.9621653, 56.2607801). However, it's better to do it in Bandar Abbas as they will do it faster and seem to be better prepared for tourists. In Qeshm, I would suggest you to go to the office at aroun...
