Electronic visa of Iran
The entry of foreign nationals into any country for any reason, including treatment, work, and education, requires obtaining permission from that government to enter the country. In international regulations this permission is issued via a document called visa.
In the past, in order to enter a country, foreign nationals had to go to the embassy or consulate office of the destination country to register a visa application and later receive it. But currently, in many countries of the world, visa application registration is done electronically and through websites. In this regard, in Iran, the system of electronic visa, evisa.mfa.ir, has been launched by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through which electronic visas are issued for foreign nationals.
An introduction to the electronic visa system of the Islamic Republic of Iran: evisa.mfa.ir
When a person intends to travel from his country to another country, in addition to things such as obtaining a passport, he must obtain an entry permit from the government of the destination country. This permission is issued in the form of a document, which is called a document, visa for a specific purpose such as leisure, travel, work and study.
In the past, when a person intended to travel to another country, he had to go to the embassy or consulate office of the destination country to register a visa application and receive it. A process that, while being time-consuming, caused crowding of foreign nationals in the embassies and consulate offices of the governments.
