Pilgrimage Visa for Foreigners

Pilgrimage Visa for Foreigners

Like other countries, commuting Iran borders requires an Iranian visa. Passing Iran’s borders is not an exception to this rule. Therefore, foreigners are required to obtain a visa to enter our country. Applicants should apply through Iranian embassies located in different countries around the world. Of course, the process of receiving it is slightly different depending on the country of residence of the applicant. For example, citizens of USA, UK, and Canada must spend more time obtaining their visas than citizens of other countries in the world, or Israeli citizens cannot obtain an Iranian visa at all. But on the other hand, citizens of Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Syria, Egypt, Bolivia and Venezuela are exempted from obtaining a visa, which means that these people can enter our country and stay for a certain period of time without having the visa of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In fact, the citizens of Turkey, Armenia and Syria have the right to stay in the country for 3 months, citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Syria for 1 month, Egypt for 20 days and Venezuela for 15 days without any visa. Now, if these people want to stay longer, they have to apply for longer stay.

According to what was said, people of different countries have to spend different amount of time to get visa. But in any case, one of the important points that all applicants should consider s choosing the right type of visa. According to the laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran, different visas are issued to people according to the purpose of travel and by receiving each of them, a person will have certain privileges.

Therefore, people should choose the right type of visa depending on their purpose of traveling to Iran. In fact, if the selected visa type is not suitable for the person’s purpose of traveling to Iran, the embassy prevents issuing a visa for her/him; Even if there is no defect in the his/her file. Therefore, choosing the right type of visa has an important effect on obtaining an immediate visa. For this reason, we will continue to introduce the types of visas.
