Iran Visa Costs and Charges for Different Countries
There are Two Iran Visa Costs and Charges that often occur to obtain your Iran visa. The first is the Iran Visa MFA Application charge, which is similar to the ESTA approval from the U.S. Homeland and Security. While the second is the actual charge for the visa stamp in your passport itself.
#1 Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Approval: While the MFA application may be waived if you are eligible to obtain a visa on arrival, this option may cost you an additional 2-3 hrs at the airport, risk of refusal, plus an additional 25 Euro above the regular visa charge (see below). So in 2016 most tourists still prefer to receive the MFA approval number prior to arrival. The cost for the MFA Application generally ranges between 40 to 55 Euro (45 to 60 USD), and can be obtained from Iran travel agencies only, rather than the MFA itself.
#2 Visa Stamp Charge: The Iran visa cost tends to fluctuate every few years depending on the transient diplomatic situation with various countries. So the visa stamp fee is based on the applicants' nationality. The list of the consular fees are indicated below, just make sure you check the Iran Visa Requirements for Entry and Exit before applying. If your country is not included in the list below you can contact us to ask: How you can apply for an Iran Visa, and the expected visa costs you must pay.
