How it works:
- Situation: as of 2019, US, British and Canadian travelers have to engage an Iranian travel agency to arrange their trip.
- Set-up: fake online agents will claim to be able to help you get a visa faster, or increase the chances of getting your visa approved. After you pay, they disappear.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- For US, British and Canadian travelers, you can find a trusted agency via online travel forums.
- For others, you can apply for a visa via the Iranian embassy in your home country or on arrival in Iran.
