Iran Visa FAQs

When is the best time to apply for my Iran visa?
The best time to apply for your Iran visa is 1-2 months before your travel date. However, if you are running short on time, we may be able to process your visa on a faster service at the Embassy’s discretion.

Do I have to send you my passport to get a Iran visa? Is it safe to send a passport?
Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Iran visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa request cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application using our secure collection service.

They will need to ensure that the authorization has been sent to the Iranian Embassy in Canberra and that it specifies either a single, double or multiple entry visa is required.

    Applicant must supply a letter from the sponsor or tour operator with the reference number of the authorisation. A copy is acceptable. This letter must:

    • Include the full address and contact details of the sponsor or tour operator
    • The reference number of the official authorisation
    • Specify the purpose and duration of stay
