Iran tourist visa requirements and procedure for UAE citizens
Citizens of the United Arab Emirates need to get an authorization code from the oﬃcial MFA website (https://e_visa.mfa.ir/en/) or through an agency in Iran. The authorization code functions as an invitation letter from a host in Iran. According to our experience with our customers and the emails, we receive every week, the oﬃcial website of the ministry of foreign aﬀairs keeps you waiting for several weeks and in the end, in most cases, they ask you to apply through an agency. So, it would be easier to save time and start the process with an agency.
You can apply for your authorization code with 1stQuest with only €19.
What you need to get an authorization code:
1. A passport with at least 2 empty pages and more than 6 months of validity
2. A passport-sized picture of your face
3. A scanned photo of your passport’s ﬁrst page
4. Your personal, address and contact details
5. Your arrival and departure date your visa collection point (it can be either from an Iranian embassy or at the airport)
