How can I get medical visa for Iran?
In recent years, due to the cheapness of treatment costs and the country’s need to generate dollar income, special attention has been paid to health tourism, and in this regard, even with the presence of the Corona virus and the lack of tourist and pilgrimage visas, Iran’s treatment visa (Treatment Visa Type T) can be issued and applicants for treatment in Iran can travel to Iran by obtaining this visa and stay in Iran for 30 to 45 days. Under current conditions, medical visas are not issued at the airport and must be obtained through a travel agency in Iran to obtain a barcode and confirmation, and then the applicant must attend the Iranian embassy in the country of residence to confirm and finalize his visa. The duration of obtaining an Iranian health visa for most nationalities is less than 7 days, and to obtain it, a doctor’s letter and an IPD permit are required. In the following, we have exlained the conditions and documents required for the treatment visa, the procedures for obtaining it, costs, etc.
Keep in mind that it is possible to obtain an Iran visa only through a travel agency and complete treatment procedures in Iran, and the visa cannot be obtained individually.

Then by paying and traveling to Iran, leave the treatment steps to the experts of the travel agency.
Obtaining medical visa at the airport of Iran
In the past years, it has been possible to obtain an Iranian medical visa at the airport, and citizens of Venezuela, Turkey, Syria, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Bolivia, Egypt, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia can obtain an airport medical visa at the airports. An applicant from one of these countries must get an invitation from a medical center in Iran to treat his illness before traveling, then come to Iran and receive an airport medical visa at one of Iran’s international airports (of course, because it is possible that your visa application might be rejected we do not recommend this method as it will cost you a lot of time and money and eventually yields no result for you.)
