Anyone gotten a visa for Iran at their embassy in Dubai?
I was just confirmed for a G Adventures Iran tour mid-April 2017. Will need to renew my American passport before the trip but can't start the process until 27 January (I'll be out of the US until then). Need to decide whether to specify on my authorization form whether I'll be getting the visa from the Iranian section of the Pakistan embassy in Washington, DC or at the Iranian embassy in Dubai. Was planning on spending a few days in Dubai anyway but have no idea how long it takes to get an Iranian visa issued in Dubai. Anyone have any experience with time and difficulty?
As long as I'm on the topic, any recommendations of things to do and see in Dubai? How many days would you recommend spending in Dubai?
