While applying for an Iran tourist visa you should consider that there is a chance of being rejected. However, Iran visa rejection doesn’t mean that your chance is blown away. Don’t give up and don’t miss the chance of visiting the spectacular country of Iran. You can always use other ways to apply for a visa which is fully explained below. In addition, you can see the reasons why your visa has been denied.
Why you got rejected?
There are some main reasons for your Iran visa refusal which are fully explained below.
Mentioning that you work for Media
You should keep this in mind that working in the media will make things harder for you while applying for a visa. If you are applying through Iran e-visa yourself, you will be asked to send your CV and social media pages as well as a copy of your passport, visa application forms, photo for verification, your hotel reservation, and your flight information. Working for the media may end up with an Iran e-visa rejection.
Being an Israeli Citizen
Citizens of Israel are not allowed to visit Iran under any circumstances. In addition, if you are not from Israel but you have traveled there before coming to Iran, make sure that it passes at least 6 months from your trip to Israel. Consider that if you apply for a visa immediately after your travel to Israel, it is highly possible to get rejected.
Citizens of the UK, US, and Canada
Applying for Iran visa for UK, US, and Canadian citizens, you have to go through a different path which you can fully read in this article. Briefly, you have to apply through a travel agency and you must have a tour guide from the moment you come to Iran.
Make Sure that Your Job Don’t Result in a Visa Rejection
For preventing the entry of spies into Iran, journalists, press photographers, and government workers are banned from entering Iran. In addition, police officers and athletes may also get a rejection message. As mentioned before, media workers are also not allowed to travel to Iran.
Some Extra Hints
Your reason for traveling to Iran must be mentioned in your Iran visa application form. For example, if you are an athlete you should apply for a sports visa. Furthermore, if your tourist visa got rejected, wait for one day and then again apply through a travel agency.
Keep in mind that you must reserve a hotel in advance. So mention the name of the hotel you really reserved. Don’t just write something to fill your form. Reserve it for real.
