Why (not) me?

That's great that you've received your visa. I hope to be in Iran about the same time as you, but I've been having significant problems getting my visa... well, or even my passport back from the consulate in Ottawa, Canada. I'm told it's tougher for Canadians. Here's an update of my problems. I've also posted in greater detail on other threads on the HUBB.

"After weeks of waiting I’m finally getting serious with the Iranian embassy regarding my visa and passport issue. (They’ve had my passport for nearly two months and they won’t return my phone calls or e-mails.) I had a friend in Ottawa physically visit the embassy to verify that it exists. She said it did. I asked if it consisted of a dark room up a rickety flight of stairs in an abandoned building down by the docks. She said Ottawa is more of a white collar town than a shipping hub… it doesn’t really have docks. In fact, she said, the Iranian embassy is quite nice and, yes, people do work there. Fine. So I contacted Foreign Affairs. They told me to contact my MP. I called him, filled out some forms and now he’s making inquiries on my behalf. I’m told that my passport should be back in my hands shortly, though, probably, sans Iranian visa… which puts me back at square one."
