Yes, (depending on your nationality) if you're planning to go through Iran, apply very early to see if they are giving visas... relationships have worsened in the last few years.
My experience as a UK citizen:
2002: 2 weeks wait for a visa
2008: applied in May, stopped asking about it in late August when it became irrelevant
Alternatively, consider going via Saudi Arabia but there's more to see in Iran.
