  1. Hello from New Zealand. Let me know when you make it down here.
    I saw that you crossed from Armenia to Iran by land and I would like to ask some questions about that crossing because I may be going the same way in a month.
    Were you able to get a visa on arrival at the land border or did you need to go to an embassy before?
    How much did it cost, where and how long did it take?

    • Hey Pat thanks for your comment! You can’t get a visa on arrival (VOA) at a land border, only at the biggest airport in Tehran. I ordered a visa online via iranianvisa.com, traveled for another month in Georgia/Abkhazia, then went to the embassy in Armenia to pick it up (which took 2 whole days). The total price was about €70 at that time (2014). I’m not sure if I’d do it the same way again now, but it worked just fine. Happy travels and have fun in Iran!
