Trying to fly to Kish Island

Hi all!

We are hoping to fly to Kish from Dubai at the end of July. The Kish Airlines website has been down for some weeks and we are flying to Dubai as airline employees therefore not going through any travel agency. We are trying to find out how to get a ticket to Kish and view the flight schedule before we arrive in Dubai. Is there a way to do this? does anyone know where the Kish Airlines office is in Dubai? Can one book a ticket for same day or next day travel when in Dubai to go to Kish? We hope to have all this organized soon so we can make sure we stay within budget. We are meeting friends in Kish from mainland Iran and want to be sure we communicate our arrival into Kish to them before leaving the USA as it might be difficult to communicate with them once we leave USA. ANY help or info on Kish, Kish Airlines and overnight stays near airport in Dubai is GREATLY appreciated!!!

Thanks so much!

By the way, we are US Citizens if this makes a difference.

Hi

In reply to your letter, I should inform you that according to Iran touristy rules, American people must be joined in a guided tour package throughout their trip to Iran, and continue their travel with the same agency that started their visa process.

The only way is that to be in contact with a travel agency in Iran, then they start the visa process which takes 4 to 6 weeks to be issued via MFA. They present you with all services that you want.

It is our understanding that Kish is a Free Trade Zone and that US Citizens are not required to obtain a guide and that we can get a visa upon arrival like everyone else, isn't this still the case?

Thanks

Well, we had a lovely visit to Kish Island. We flew from Atlanta to Dubai and stayed a couple days in Dubai. While we were there, we went to Dnata Travel by the clock tower and purchased tickets roundtrip from Dubai to Kish. We traveled to Kish for a week and had a fantastic time meeting our Iranian friends there. Upon arrival at Kish Airport, I had to put on a head scarf and long sleeved jacket (light weight) and then we had to have our fingerprints taken (this is normal for Americans so don't worry!) and a few questions, then were let in to the island. Our flight back was cancelled due to a sand storm, so that's something to watch out for!! Got back to Dubai just in time to catch the flight back to Atlanta! whew!!
