  • When filling out the visa application form, the applicant’s details must be entered correctly, matching the passport and ID exactly. The applicant cannot correct/edit the details after purchasing the visa service. HelloPersia does not bear any responsibility with respect to incorrect information entered by the applicant. To correct/edit the details, the applicant must cancel the visa application and purchase a new visa service.
  • The issuance of the visa is at the sole discretion of Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and HelloPersia cannot interfere in the visa process. Therefore, HelloPersia cannot guarantee the issuance of visas.

  • The purchased visa service belongs to the applicant whose details have been entered in the visa form. A separate application form must be filled out and submitted for each applicant.
  • If there is a pending visa application awaiting a response from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the applicant cannot re-apply for a visa. The previous visa application must be cancelled before HelloPersia can submit a new visa application.
