Gurbulak - Bazargan 2021

Post by razvan »

Hello Caravanistan,

Me and my family are planning to visit Iran in 40 days (we are iranian citizens) from Antalya (we live in Romania, but we decided to continue our trip to Iran after our vacation ends).

Is there any recent updates regarding Gurbulak - Bazargan ? Any ETA when the borders will open up?

Do we need a PCR test in advance or vaccine in order to avoid quarantine?

We've been informed that they are currently closed for tourists after contacting both borders.

During the Coronavirus outbreak, Iran’s borders have been closed to foreign tourists, and tourist visas have not been issued. During this period, only medical and business visas of Iran have been issued to applicants.

But now, due to the increasing speed of vaccination in recent weeks in Iran, it is predicted that Iran’s borders will be reopened to international tourists very soon."

Iranian tour operators have been saying this since March last year.

That's so exciting! I don't see anything yet on the official visa page.
I just arrived in Georgia by bicycle and to be able to continue to Iran would be a dream come true.
Thanks for sharing.

Someone knows if October 23 is the moment visa applications start or is that when the borders open? In other words; when should I start working on my visa?
Perhaps I just should be patient and we'll find out :)

It's said from Oct 23rd the tourist visa will be issued again but keep in mind in Iranian system they play with words nothing is fixed. check the evisa.mfa.ir link as soon as it's tourist visa section is open again you can apply.

“By the order of President [Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi] the issuance of tourist visas and the flow of foreign tourists from land and air borders will be resumed from [the month of] Aban (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) following 19 months of suspension,” Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Minister Ezatollah Zarghami said on Monday."

Thanks for reminding me. I put the LOI booking form online again. Feel free to give it a go.
