Can anyone offer us a letter of invitation to Iran?

Hi folks

My partner and I are currently stuck in Erzurum (eastern turkey) waiting for an Iranian visa through IranianVisa.Com but after speaking to a few others that are also stuck here we aren't feeling that confident. Are there any nice souls out there in Iran that would be willing to offer us a letter of invitation in case we have to reapply through the Iranian consulate here in Erzurum? If you can or you know somebody that would be will could you drop me a private message.

Thanks a lot.

Christopher

I had to re-apply for my Iranian visa in Erzurum after having been stuffed around(for 18 days) by the Iranian Consulate in Istanbul. From memory I didn't need a letter of invitaion- but maybe the rules for Australian citizens are different. The extra 10 day wait in Erzurum wasn't be best of fun, especially as it was the start of Ramazan!!

The younger guy at the Iranian consulate in Erzurum was very helpful though.

Just a quick hint incase anyone else finds themselves in the same predicament that we find ourselves, if you need an invitation into Iran try asking for some help on a networking site like coach surfing etc explaining your situation, hopefully someone will come through for you.
