Passport Overview

Only 39 countries offer visa-free travel to Iranian passport holders, including Sri Lanka, Ecuador, Turkey, and the Seychelles. An Iranian passport holder is required to obtain a visa for 190 places before going. The passport raking is low on the overall global mobility score because of this. Iranians must apply for a visa in advance for key destinations such as the United States and the European Union. Applicants must show documentation such as evidence of funds and a return airline ticket when applying for a visa.
