The helplessness turns
Many variants go through my head and all have a hack, so I reject this again. In this situation Verena speaks a word: “Let’s go to Sudan via Iran”. This word immediately makes my sad thoughts clearer. In this euphoria into, but again the latest news about the tense situation of Iran with the US or vice versa. Can we dare? We do not want to be in Iran, if there should fall bombs. In conversation with a friend, we come to the conclusion that it is only saber rattles and so we dare and apply for the Iran visa. We can enter Turkey without a visa.
The Iran visa can be applied electronically today. The necessary documents and the procedure seem a bit complicated, which is why we return to the visa service, with which we have already had very good experiences, to the AVS Allvisaservice in Bern. For the visa is required:
- Passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the travel date
- Visa application signed by hand
- 2 passport photos a) without glasses and b) woman with headscarf
- European fingerprint sheet with impressions of all fingers (this has been done by the forensic service of the glorious Zurich cantonal police)
- When entering by land: A travel plan with entry and exit points
- Confirmation of health insurance valid in Iran
- Confirmation of residence
The required documents may of course differ and the above listing is without guarantee.
To speed up the procedure, we drive to Bern, handing over the documents to the AVS. During the waiting time, we drive into the mountains and stand at the Sustenpass.
