Iran Visa For Afghan Citizens

Iran tourist visa is required for Afghan citizens. Among other types of Iran visas, the tourist visa is the easiest for Afghan citizens. Like the other nationalities, the stay can be for a period of up to 45 days and the visa expires 3 months after being issued. Iran travel agents cannot support Iran visa application for Afghan citizens since the applicant is required to be present when applying. It means that the Afghan passport holder must apply directly in one of Iran’s consulates located in Kabul, Herat, Mazar Sharif, Kandahar, or Jalalabad. To grease the wheels, an Afghan citizen who has a permanent residence card or passport from another country can get an Iran tourist visa easier. Read also: Iran Tourist Visa Application Form
