Long-term visa for business purpose

The appointment for applications for long-term visa / residence permit must be arranged in advance exclusively by e-mail sent to the following e-mail address: visa_tehran@mzv.cz. Except for purpose of studies for which there is a special procedure (see the details lower). Before sending the request applicant should check whether the required type of visa is being issued here.

E-mail requests for an appointment are uploaded to one infinite queue based on the date, hour, minute, and second of delivery of the email into the Embassy’s inbox. The Embassy does not interfere with the order of delivered e-mails in any way, the Embassy does not alter or influence the queue. In case the applicant cannot attend his given appointment, he/she has to request a new appointment in the standard manner. 

The rule is: one email = one applicant. The only exception is for minors (under-age children), which will apply for residency together with a legal guardian. In this case it is possible to apply for an appointment date by the same email as for the legal guardian.

  • Name, date of birth, passport number, email, telephone number - Long-term visa / resident permit appointment form (DOCX, 13 KB)
