I always wanted to visit Iran and finally got my visa. The process of applying for Iranian visa was not so difficult as most of people think. When I was in Turkey I planned to get Iranian visa in Tbilisi. After visiting Iran embassy in Tbilisi, figured out that it will be kinda hard, as they recommended better go to tour agency and get authentification number. Authentification number is ID number of your invitation letter. So, travel agency in Iran sends copy of your documents to Ministry of Iran and after review you will get authentification number. For sure I could apply for visa in Tbilisi but it would take too much time, minimum 3 weeks. After decided try to find another options, the first one was to go to Armenia and apply there. But after some days one my friend recommend to go to Batumi and try luck there. He was right and I got my visa in one day. I payed 40 euro, provided photo with passport and next day I got my visa. Now I can say that it was really easy and staff was friendly.
Iran consulate in Batumi: Consulate moved to new address and now they can be found in Parnavaz Mepe St, Batumi, in front of Departament of Tourism.
Neccesary documents for visa:
- 2 photos 3×4
- Visa fee about 40 euro
If you are in Turkey, I recommend you to apply for visa in Trabzon and you can get visa in one day as in Batumi. So you do not need go to Batumi.
