Recent Iranian visa for american/US passport motorcyclist?
 
I'm having quite a difficult time acquiring visa for Iran.

With the current state of Iran-US relation, travelers from the US have to book all tours, accomodations, and transportation before applying for visas. A guide is required for the whole duration of stay. This last requirement is particularly difficult since we're on a motorcycle. The last thing I want to do is to hire a car and a driver just to enable the guide to accompany us.

Has any overlander gone through this process in recent time? Please share your experience.

TIA.

Two of us have just received "invites" for Iran. We will pick up the visa's in Almaty or Islamabad.
The invite gives you a number that you give to the embassy to get your visa.

As we are both Brits we used an agent to try and minimise the hassles and it worked.

John,

I'm also using a travel agency in Tehran. It has been over 1 month since I paid their fees, but there's no progress.

Let us know how it goes with your visas.

They are the agency that I'm using. I want to reserve my views on them until we finish our business. I'm still hoping to give them positive reviews (for my sake.)
