Applying for an Iranian visa isn’t for free. At least not for most countries. There are different visa fees for various visitors. The amount of money you need to pay as a non-Iranian depends on the visa type, as well as the country you’re from. In this post we’re going to focus on the tourist visa for Iran.
At the moment, citizens from the following countries can enter Iran without Visa: Turkey, Egypt, Lebanon, Venezuela, Georgia, Bolivia, Malaysia, Serbia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Syria. Needless to say that the list might change in the future and Iranian officials might decide to add more countries to the list. This is true as of 2020.
Visitors from the visa-free list can travel to the beautiful Iran for a certain amount of time. It is as it follows:
- Armenia (90 Days)
- Turkey (90 Days)
- Azerbaijan (30 Days)
- Egypt (20 Days)
- Malaysia (15 Days)
- Bolivia (30 Days)
- Georgia (45 Days)
- Lebanon (30 Days)
- Serbia (30 Days)
- Venezuela (15 Days)
However, if you’re not a citizen from any of the countries listed above, you need to apply for a visa either in advance or on arrival. Although for some countries it’s only “in advance”, and you can’t get visa on arrival. These countries include: the USA, Canada, UK, Somalia, Iraq, Colombia, Jordan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India. However, if you’re not from any of these countries, you may apply for a VOA. Depending on where you’re from, the price varies from 10 euros to 150. In the table below, you can find the complete list of the counties and how much their citizens have to pay to enter Iran.
