Information for International Scholars


At TMU, we are encouraging all types of international collaboration including joint projects, joint publications, as well as joint supervision of graduate students. In this regard, international mobility is an indispensable part of such collaborations.
Our office is in charge of sponsoring the visa for such a mobility. For majority of countries, the process is quite straightforward. Once we hear from the hosting department, we shall need a color passport photo, the image of the first page of your passport and the application form to be filled out by you. The passport photo should have a light background with no shadows and the person must directly face the camera. Please also have your host faculty member to fill out these two forms in Persian on your behalf.
Once your visa is processed, we will send you your visa notice. You can either take it to an Iranian consulate to pick up your visa or you can pick it up at one of the designated airports in Iran who are authorized to issue visa on arrival. However, your pick up choice must be indicated on your visa application form. If you have any questions, please send an email to:
