Is it safe to travel to Iran now? Despite the engineered picture projected in the mainstream media, Iran has always been safe for tourists. Almost any tourist who travels to Iran is astonished by the contradiction which exists between the real Iran and the image of this country in the mass media. Iran is one of the friendliest and culturally-rich countries you’ll ever visit. And no, they do not hate Americans or any other Western nation. That’s just fear-mongering and it is far from reality. Currently, about 3,000-3,500 Americans visit Iran each year. Iranians will be keen to demonstrate their hospitality to all tourists and specially US citizens and will offer to host them for lunch or dinner. Please remember that we are responsible for you and we will undoubtedly let you know in case there is any danger for you.
How can I get a tourist visa to Iran? Obtaining an Iranian visa is roughly a two-step process: 1) a travel authorization number from the Iranian Ministry of Foreign affairs, and 2) the actual tourist visa issued by an Iranian consulate. Depending your nationality, you can apply for the tourist visa through travel agencies in Iran. Authorized travel agencies will submit application forms to the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Once the application approved and you code received (will issue an 18-digit code after 5-10 working days), you can apply for your visa directly with the nominated Iranian embassy or Iran International Airports.
