Please note the Iranian Foreign Ministry are still happily issuing visa permits for all passport holders, including the British, to travel to Iran. However, since the Iranian Consulate in London is now closed indefinitely, in order to collect the visa stamp, we have to send the visa permit to an Iranian Consulate other than London.
As far as we are aware, one cannot collect the visa stamp on arrival at the airport in Iran, so the visa has to be stamped in in advance.
The closest Consulate is Dublin; however you can also collect the visa stamp at the Iranian Consulate for example in Paris or Istanbul, or any capital city with an Iranian Consulate.
The Dublin Consulate, fortunately (for the moment and this can change) do not require finger prints for British passport holders. Therefore, whilst you can visit them in person to collect the visa stamp, you can also post your passport and documents to them - by registered mail only.
Please note they do insist on having the visa stamp fees of 150 Euros (for British passport holders - other nationalities will vary; EU passports cost around 70 Euros) in Cash only - cheques or card are not accepted.
Magic Carpet Travel can therefore obtain the visa permit on your behalf as usual, using the same process as set out on our website, but it has to be for collection in Dublin or elsewhere, but not London.
Please note,Regulation if for example you are stopping off on route to Iran in Istanbul or Dubai, you can go in person to the Iranian Consulate to collect the visa stamp. As we understand it however, you may be required to give finger prints as a British passport holder (other nationalities are not required to provide finger prints). In that case you will be directed to a local police station to provide finger prints. It may then turn out to be a lengthy and frustrating process.
Overall it is best to go for the easier option of collection from the Dublin Consulate.
The downside however, is that Dublin Iranian Consulate is a very small office. The Consular section is open two hours every other day of the week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday 09.30 - 11.30).
We also do offer a faster service for those visiting Iran for business purposes , using DHL at a minimum cost of £250 - the exact cost will depend on how rapidly you need the visa stamped in. Please contact us for details.
In order for us to process your application, you can follow the procedure set out on the website. In summary we require:
Once your visa permit is issued, within two to three weeks of us receiving your details, you will need to complete and send the R1/R2 form (Dublin Consulate will accept the London Consulate form), together with your passport and photos, etc. in order to collect the visa stamp.
We will provide full details for this part of the process, once you have started the application.
