I'm trying to visit Iran this October/November. To be honest I want to visit my boyfriend. I met him in February this past year Turkey. I'm really in love with him and need to see him. Is there any way you can help, can I book a tour or pay a good fee to you for an authorization code? Please, any help I appreciate so much.
