Those of you who would like to use these facilities, please fill out the attached form and send it back via email (13idw2017@gmail.com) attaching a copy of your passport, and a full-face photo (3×4 or 4×6). You will be provided a reference code issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), Iran by the Secretariat of the IDW13.

Another alternative will be to receive visa upon arrival at Imam Khomaini International Airport in Tehran by presenting the workshop official invitation letter. Although this option enables passport holders from specific countries to enter Iran (only by arrival flights to Imam Khomaini International Airport) without approaching any Iranian Embassy, it is not suggested by the IDW13 and must be considered as a back-up plan in emergency cases. Please note the visa cannot be issued for passports which have a validity of less than 6 months.
