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

IMPORTANT: the requirement to apply at the e-visa site to get a visa on arrival now applies for all Iranian airports, not just Tehran.

VOA Iran no more sticker

Postby laurent_rio » Thu Mar 01, 2018 3:14 am


My friend just arrive in Iran last week and apply VOA in IKA Airport. He report that sticker visa not given only stamp but still need to pay visa fee of 57 USD or 45 Euro. It give trouble when he leave Iran to Azerbaijan via Bilasuar border (near Tabriz), since the officer dont understand the new system and need to call someone about it but finally he can past

Can anybody confirm this is new system ? last year i still get my sticker visa on arrival in IKA

I arrived in Iran this month. I didn't fill in the e-visa VOA form beforehand. This was not needed.
Also; I had stamps in my passport that were proof I traveled from Israel to Jordon over land, nobody problems!

some Malaysian are worry about free visa for land crossing. i got it 15 days free visa when i cross the border from Herat to Mashhad. Without many question, they stamp on my passport.

Some Malaysian are worry about free visa if they cross from Armenia to Iran. Should be no issue. We are famous among Iranian.

good luck

I've landed in Shiraz in April 2018 and had all required documents printed out (e-visa application confirmation, health insurance confirmation, hotel booking confirmation, onward flight ticket), however the immigration staff member only had a quick look at the first page of the e-visa confirmation and didn't seem to really care about it, he didn't even check any other document. I had to pay 75 EUR at the bank (German passport) and even got a 60-days visa after roughly stating my itinerary. One of the smoothest immigration processes I've gone through.
