    • Booking Dizin Hotel

      Iran Nov 15, 2015 at 10:35 AM

      Has anyone got the phone number of Dizin Hotel, Iran? Either the numbers on the internet doesn't seem to work, or no one picks up. When we filled up the form on the hotel website, we don't get any response.
      We tried booking through an agent, but the payment method is via another country to a different entity, no mention to the services we are paying for is permitted, invoice is shoddy, and we feel uncomfortable with the whole arrangement. Is there a way we can verify that the agent and the payment is genuine?
      Feeling frustrated with the whole thing but it is too late to cancel our travel plans.

      Confirmation of new rules: giving 30 days Visa On Arrival!

      Iran Nov 8, 2015 at 2:07 AM

      Hi there!
      I was there 2 weeks ago, and got a 30 days visa on arrival at IKA airport.
      I didn't really need it, nor asked for it, they just gave it.
      I had a Greek passport, without any preauthorization code. They didnt ask about photos, hotel, or anything, just very quiet procedure.
      Only be careful on the application form, there was a place to write a name of sponsor-address - tel, so I wrote of my hotel manager's.
      The cost of visa was 60 euro.
      I couldn't understand what happened with health insurance, I had my own, showed them, they didn't seem to care about that.
      Anyway, things are getting easier, and hope to improve rules for all passports, since the news say it is only for some, yet..
      Also, while travelling, I was approached by 2 seperate survey people, who were making study of how to increase tourism (one in Shiraz and one in Yazd). Things seem to be changing, slowly though...
      It is a great country, with great people, do go there!
      happy travels to all!!!!

      Kish Air...?

      Kish Apr 2, 2009 at 1:35 PM

      Is Kish Air still flying from Abu Dhabi to Kish Island? Anyone know for sure? Why is their web site always under construction? I'm genuinely interested in getting Iran on my list of countries visited, and Kish seems like an easy option while I'm out working in Abu Dhabi.
      Any help gratefully received.

      Diving on Kish Island

      Kish Jan 29, 2006 at 1:02 AM

      When I go to Iran later this year I want to visit Kish Island for a few days for scuba diving. Last week I read in Bradt Travel Guide (from 2005) that diving was only for men. Is this true? Some years ago I met an Iranian woman in Damascus and she told me she and her sister had done a dive on Kish Island. Maybe the rules have changed since then. I have searched on Internet to find any information about this, but without success. Before I got this link from aliamiri
      On this website there is a mail link I and I wrote a mail, but have not got an answer.
      Does anyone know if women can dive on Kish Island?

      Scuba diving on Kish Island

      Kish Aug 29, 2005 at 8:09 AM

      I hope to visit Iran next year and would like to do some days of scuba diving on Kish Island. I have read that Kish is the only place to dive in in Iran and that there is only one diving centre there. I made a search on Internet to get more information, but all pages coming up only mentioned that diving was possible on Kish.
      Does anyone know anything about diving centres and the diving at Kish Island? Is it very expensive?
      Does anyone know if there is a cheap place to stay at on Kish?

      Hi, I am thinking of starting a video studio in iran specializing in multi language, advertising and short videos for entertainment. I'm an american and have heard this is currently impossible (because of us restrictions) . What about on Kish Island? Iranians are world famous for their filmmaking so I know there is a talented pool of professionals. Lorich
