The British embassy in Tehran announced on twitter that it has resumed issuing visa for Iranian citizens 10 years after the embassy shut down its visa office.

 “We are pleased to announce that the Tehran Visa Application Center reopened yesterday (Sunday) to provide British visa services. Visa applicants now need compliance with health protocols to keep themselves and the visa application staff healthy,” the twitter post read.

British Ambassador to Tehran Rob Macaire said in an Instagram post a week ago that the embassy was planning to reopen the center.

"The process of obtaining a British visa is transparent and fair," Macaire said, adding: "You have to provide all the relevant documents and meet the required criteria. No broker is required to obtain a visa. All required information is online and all the appointments would be given every week."

Iranian citizens had to apply for UK visa through the embassies in Istanbul or Abu Dhabi after the British embassy in Tehran announced on 5 September 2009 that it had decided to shut down its visa office due to the plan to reduce the number of its staff.
