Where: Sari, Iran
People: 2 person

Story:
We had to extend our iranien visa (first extension) for another 30 days. But due to the Chinese embassy which keeps your passport for 4 days and the holidays for the end of Ramedan that we didn’t see coming, we couldn’t do it in time.
We went first to the police station in Tehran (be careful only the immigration office does it, not all police station) but without our passport they didn’t accept.

To not loose time we started to cycle to Sari and went to the police station for extension the day it reopened after the holidays.
It was 2 DAYS after the ending date of our visa.

It would have been an issue being just us, not speaking Farsi but an iranien we met before came with us and helped us and it went all good.
We managed to extend our visa. We didn’t have to pay penalties, only the regular 340.000 rial per person.

Extension was for one month starting for the last day of our initial visa (not from the day we went to the police station).
