Courier return of passports made mandatory for Portugal visa customers in Tehran
Effective 19 July 2020, in light of the COVID-19 alert and keeping in mind the health and safety of our customers and employees, the courier service for return of passports to Greece visa customers in Tehran has been made mandatory.
Customers no longer need to visit the Visa Application Centre to pick up their passport. Once ready for collection, the passport will be couriered to their location of choice (serviceable by our courier partner, Aramex & TNT).
Courier fees of Euro 9.5 per application (inside Tehran) and Euro 13 per application (outside Tehran) will apply.
The courier service has been made mandatory for a temporary period to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus and reduce the footfall at the Visa Application Centre.
We will post an update on this page when the courier service is made optional again.
We apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
