Some notes and tidbits:

  • It’s highly recommended to call the Iran Interests section of the Embassy to verify the instructions you read here as things may change (they are not always transparent) Don’t be shy calling either before or after you received your code.  Do give them as much detail about your situation as possible so they will give you the correct information.
  • You can get a money order cheap from Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, or a large chain supermarket in your area (Will vary) In some cases they will only accept cash process it.
  • Mailing your passport is nerve-wracking, FedEx is recommended. You’ll have tracking and you definitely want your passport to have a short transit. 
  • The seem to be efficient and have quick turnaround. They will Fedex your passport back to you.  Call for updates.
