Iran visa rejections Q&A

Postby Handrup » Wed Nov 28, 2018 8:57 pm

Hello friendly helpers.
I am by bicycle. In Istanbul the consulate told me to make an application for the E VISA, which I did. And a week later I showed up at the consulate where they told me, that it had been rejected, and I got no reason -only a suggestion of trying again. Since I have left Istanbul heading towards Iran, I want to make the next application for the consulate in Erzurum, but I cannot make another E VISA application, because the page tells me that I already have one application working in the system.
I have written e-mails begging for deletion to both the iranean foreign ministry and the consulate in Istanbul, but have recieved no answer.
It has been 2 weeks since I got the rejection.
Is it possible to get a VISA just by riding to the border in Gürbulak maybe?

We got stuck in the system and could solve it by telling the embassy guy in Tbilisi to cancel our application.

IRAN e-visa rejection trying to get a VOA at the airport anyway

Postby edoardo » Tue Dec 25, 2018 5:44 pm

Dear All,

I did the application for the E VISA in order to collect my visa faster at the airport. I just see today that my application has been rejected. I'm on a bicycle trip around the world and I just went home for the christmas holidays and thinking of coming back to Iran with a VOA. Do you think it is a good idea show up at the airport and trying to get the VOA there even if i was rejected? I will fly in a few days and no time to go to the embassy

I've read about people doing this successfully (but can't remember where), but I haven't heard about anybody who tried and was sent back at the airport. So I suppose it's your best bet to try it out. Please report on your experience afterwards! (I've been holding back from getting an e-visa because I'm worried I'll end up in your predicament...)

Via e-mail:

We had 2 rejected visa for travelling over land on to Iran. We still wanted to go to Iran so bought flights and flew with our bicycles from Baku to Tehran. We didn't apply again online and said on arrival we didn't have a visa.  The flight arrived at night and was full with Visa- free people. The whole procedure with only 3 others waiting there took 1,5h. During the small interview the  man promised a 30 day visa.

Then I asked about rejecting and told about our case. This ended up in giving a 60 day visa for enough time to see Iran by bicycle;) So it seems no problem with rejected e-Visa to ask for the VOA.

Dear all, I could fly in and get my VOA without problem even if my application in Italy was rejected.

My request trough the e-visa system was rejected. My request trough an agency, a few days later, was approved.
