Through this code, Iranian visitors or Iranian travelers can have their Iran Visas stamped on their passports.

The visa fee consists of two parts. The first part is related to the cost of the visa code, which is received by the travel agency or any other host; this cost depends on the type of visa requested. The second part is the special fee to be paid at the embassy or upon arrival at the airport which varies according to the nationality of the applicant.
