As Western sanctions are gradually lifted and Iran is reintroduced to the global business community, we have provided three essential tips for your travellers when visiting Iran...
British passport holders must obtain a visa before travelling to Iran. They are available through the Iranian embassy in London. Visa applications should be made well in advance of travel as the process remains cumbersome. It is important to be sure the visa covers the duration of a trip – when a shortfall has occurred, there have been cases when British travellers have been forced to remain in the country until a new visa is obtained. Women, and girls over the age of nine, should wear a headscarf in their visa application photos.
A UK passport must be valid for a minimum of six months from the date a visa application is submitted. If a passport contains an Israeli stamp, or stamps from other countries’ border-crossing points with Israel, one may be refused entry to the country. Iran doesn’t recognise dual nationality.
Yellow fever vaccination is required for travellers arriving from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission.
