Exciting news for Indian travelers! As of February 4th, 2024, Iran has implemented a visa-waiver program for Indian citizens entering the country by air for tourism purposes. This means you can now explore the wonders of Iran without the hassle of obtaining a visa, but there are a few things to keep in mind:
Conditions for Visa-Free Entry:
- Stay Duration: Maximum of 15 days, and cannot be extended.
- Frequency: Entry permitted once every six months.
- Purpose: Only valid for tourism purposes.
- Entry Point: Must enter through air borders.
If you plan to stay longer, make multiple entries within six months, or travel for non-tourism purposes, you’ll need to apply for a visa through Iranian missions in India.
