Use your German passport to get a visa on arrival (or at an embassy if entering overland)

If flying into Tehran, you'll need to make an application through this website at least two days in advance, print the submission confirmation and present it with your passport at the airport. https://evisatraveller.mfa.ir/en/request/apply/

As for your US passport, only use it when re-entering the US.

Thanks. I'll be flying US -> Frankfurt -> Tehran, i.e. starting in the US. I live in the US and my German passport was issued by the US consulate in Chicago. Do you think any of this is going to be a problem?

No, all of that is ganz unwesentlich. Like I said, just remember that application, because a passenger recently got sent back from Tehran for not having submitted it (can't prove that it was the reason, but it feels highly likely)

One more question: Do I need a travel insurance that clearly states "Iran"?

Iran Visa - Dual Nationality

Post by Jan W »

Hi, i am a dual Belgian-US citizen with his permanent residence in the USA. I understand Belgians can get a visa on arrival; and that Americans needs to work with a travel agency. Will entering on my Belgian passport cause any issues if the Iranian authorities find out i am also a US citizen (e.g. by asking for my permanent residence, or checking some database, or checking my luggage since i travel with both passports)?

Does anyone have experience with this?

thanks
