It is very hard and time-consuming for Britons and Amercians to acquire Iranian visas - plan WELL AHEAD.
|Quoting UK_Dispatcher (Thread starter):|
What is the attitiude of the Iranian people towards Europeans - are they as friendly and hospitable as most other people in the region?
In my experience they certainly are. You shouldn't have no problems.
Are you intending to see things in this extraordinary country or merely going to fly? If you're after advice re. place, I'll happily help - I'm a perpetual backpacker.
If you're going to be flying internally, then book your flights when in Iran: they are cheaper and you can almost always get on the flight you want. Fares in Iran are also stupidly cheap: a one-way ticket from, say, THR to SYZ should cost, in Iran, about £10-12 all-in.
