Persian language Learning Applicant-Group A

Dehkhoda Institute foreign applicants (including Turkish and Syrian nationals), who require the help of the center in obtaining their student visa. This visa is valid for one month and will allow the Persian learning applicant to enter the country but will need to be extended two weeks prior to its expiration date.

Once you register your name via the Online Registration System, at least three months prior to the Persian course starting date, your application will be submitted to the Admission Committee.

  • The online forms should be completely filled out, as the Admissions Committee will not take incomplete documents into consideration. 
  • Note: Your four-digit registration ID should be emailed to dehkhoda@ut.ac.ir
  • Once your application is accepted by the Admission Committee, the center will contact the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) who will then authorize the Iranian embassy in your country to grant you an Educational-Visa to study Persian in Iran. After almost two weeks, your E-Visa will be sent to you via ICPS email. You will have to wait for the MFA to announce their decision to the embassy of Iran in the country of your residence.
