Embassy Report: Iran Visa in Tashkent

Postby Seradane » Wed Jun 14, 2017 6:55 am

Firstly, apologies if there is already a thread - I searched but couldn't find one.

So I thought I'd update on getting your Iran Visa in Tashkent as the last information is from 2015 and we weren't sure how much was still relevant.

Embassy staff are still very friendly and helpful, speak excellent English. We went on Wednesday around 9:30 and the room was very quiet, no waiting at all. Opening hours are Mon-Fri 9am - 12:30pm.

You need to fill in two forms, one police clearance with fingerprints and the other standard visa application. Three passport photos needed (don't know if your hair needs to be covered, the woman we dealt with seemed delighted that I had photos that did though).

We had the RN arranged through an agency (Pars Tourist Agency) and the lady at the embassy confirmed our visas were approved. Options were regular service which takes 1 week or emergency service which is same day, and they keep your passport. Payment is still required in Euros, and apparently the bank won't exchange or accept payment in another currency (this is what the lady at the embassy told us, didn't confirm with the bank).

Cost for emergency service for Australian passport is 150 euro. A French family applying appeared to be charged 75 euro each for same-day service.

This is where we came unstuck as we had hoped that euros were no longer required, so we had to go away and find a way to exchange some money for euros, which meant we ran out of time before they closed today. Will have to go back tomorrow and finish the process off (she kept our application forms there).

Edit: The following day we went back after obtaining Euros, and once we had the receipt walked to the NBU bank (which is only 15 or 20 mins walk away) to make the payment. They asked us if we had our customs form, and we said we didn't, we didn't realise we needed it. They didn't ask how we got the euros. They went away for a few minutes then came back and said one of the bank staff would make the payment for us as it didn't really matter. So they got some guys passport and entered his details instead!

Probably pretty easy for them to say no if you caught them on the wrong day though so really in all this best to just bring the euros in in the first place!

Then back to the embassy where we ended up waiting three and a half hours for the visas to process, finally getting them at 2:30pm, two hours after they were supposed to have closed! I believe it would normally have been quicker (they initially told us 1 to 1.5hr wait) but they were having internet issues, and fortunately there was a French family who seemed to have a special after-hours appointment waiting too, otherwise I suspect they would have made us come back the next working day (which as there was a public holiday on the Friday, meant four days later on Monday!). Or maybe because we'd been in two days in a row they were really trying to not have us come back after the weekend.

Either way, we got it in the end! 30 day visa valid for three months from date of issue.
