In general, Iran has tried to improve its complex and time-consuming visa application process and has begun to issue week-long visas for the nationals of 68 countries at airports.

An online hotel reservation system has been developed. Iran will equip all airports with electronic visa facilities by February 2009 to issue online entry permits to foreign nationals.

Visas can now be secured electronically and be collected from Iranian consulates or international airports.

Iran has 15 road border crossings connecting it with Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Rail lines from Turkey and Turkmenistan can also be used to enter Iran.

About 70% of visitors arrived by land in 2002, about 29% by air and less than 1% by sea.

The price of internal flights is heavily subsidised, deterring competition and hampering profitability. In April 2005 the Imam Khomeini International Airport was reopened under the management of a consortium of four local airlines—Mahan Air, Aseman, Caspian Air and Kish Air—although no formal contract appeared to have been awarded.

According to nationality of applicant, type of' visa and the existing regulation between countries.
Citizens of most countries require a visa to legally enter Iran. The visa application process may take several months. I think the Citizens of Turkey, Taiwan, Malaysia, Syria, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Egypt, and Ecuador don't need a visa to enter Iran. However I need some information about visa companies where we send application to get visa in short time and also conditions and terms that we need to follow to get visa.
