Dear prospective students,


Thanks for your interest in attending Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (SUMS). In order to make a successful application, please read the FAQ section prior to the application in addition to the step-by-step application guides during the application procedure thoroughly. The following is a list of questions which you might encounter while you are applying to or after being admitted to SUMS. If you could not find the answer to your questions, please feel free to contact us through the "Your Comments" section at the bottom of this page.




    1. I do not hold a passport; can I apply?
    • It is possible to apply. You must obtain a passport, though, in order to be able to get a visa. Without having a passport you can not obtain your visa and hence can not enter Iran inorder to commence your studies!

    2. I have received my letter of acceptance and Visa Application Form. What should I do next?
    • Fill in the Visa Application Form and submit it to SUMS via email. After receiving your completed Visa Application Form and the scanned copy of the information page of your Passport, we will immediately start the administrative work for the issuance of your visa, which will hopefully be issued in a couple of weeks. Afterwards, we will send you a Visa Reference Number by which you can receive your Entry Visa from the Iranian embassy/consulate which you have written on your Visa Application Form. After your arrival in Iran, our colleagues will help you to convert your entry visa to a long-term student visa or Residence Permit.
