Visiting USA after visiting Iran. Any problems?  (3 Answers)

Hey there,
I'm a Brazilian citizen, frequent traveler to the USA (I have an American visa - I don't have an European passport).
I'm planning a trip for January which includes Iran, Armenia and Georgia.
Have any of you had problems in the American immigration after visiting Iran? I'm afraid being refused to entry the USA because of my stamps / visa from Iran, even being in Iran for 100% tourism purposes. I can't really find accurate information in internet.
Thanks in advance,

Visit Darband Mountain  (10 Answers)

I will be visiting Tehran in the middle of this month with a friend, we are to ladies in pur fourties.

We will land i Tehran at 6 a.m. on a Saturdayand will go directtly to a hotel to leave our luggage. After breakfast our plan is to go to Darband to see the city from above. We plan to go all the way to the top with the ski lift, then walk down as we have heard the walk is quite nice with lots of tea stalls etc. How long time does it take to walk down? Is it possible to take the ski lift half way down again and walk the rest?

We have only the day in Tehran, our bus to Esfahan leavs at 11 p.m. After visiting Darband we plan to go to the Bazar or visit a palce etc.

Thanks from Lena.

Can I bring my children if I am unmarried?  (18 Answers)

I am a dual US and Iranian citizen. My father is from Shiraz, and hence I am a citizen; I even attended school at the Tehran International School. But I have a 2.5 year old son, and a 1.5 year old daughter that I want to bring with me on my next trip to Iran. Their father and I are an unmarried couple, and I know that I would have to file for visas for them to go to Iran. But my question is, can I bring them along even though I am not married? Even my father thinks it could be problematic.

Booking a domestic flight in Iran  (5 Answers)

Hi there,

My Wife and I will visit Iran in the middle of this month and we wanted to book a flight from Tehran to Shiraz but are having great difficulty in doing so. I have tried emailing a few travel agents in Tehran but have so far not received any responses. Because we are only in Iran for 15 days I don't want to waste time whilst we are there and I understand that the flights often get completely booked up.
Can anybody recommend a reliable travel agent in Iran who can make the flight booking for me?

Thanks and regards,

Needing more information on Visas & trains  (3 Answers)

Hi there.

IM planning on taking a train from Ankara to Tehran in August 2012. I know the train leaves on wednesdays so i was just wondering how far in advance should i book this ticket

/rai/ I have checked this website for trains running in the next month or so and it says sorry no tickets/trains avalible.

Now with the visa i need a letter of Inviation and its something i can get from hotels? Does this mean i need to book a few nights in a Tehran hotel room for the hotel company to give me a LOI

I do have a friends i know dearly in Tehran but i wouldnt want to put him through pressure into getting me a LOI.

I hear it does take some time to get an Iranian visa and once issue i have 3 months to enter Iran. If i plan on enter Iran in August should i start getting the visa number in Febuary and applying for the visa in Canberra Australia in April.

I would also like to ask if any British Citerzens who applied for a Visa outside of the UK. If they were required to give fingerprints. I know you get fingerprints taken in London but im not so sure about other foriegn embassies. Since i am British i guess i do require an appointment at the Canberra consulate

Im going overland from London to Tehran so ill use my UK passport for europe and also to get me into Turkey for 10 pounds
