The only spanner, to me, is his nationality. For those of you who have been around for a while or have dug extensively in the archives here, you might remember a poster from Djibouti with the nick of kimtaymour. He's still never been able to get in despite working for 4 years in Malaysia and a number of years in Dubai as well. You can do a search on his nick.

Yeah, Iranian could be a pickle. On one hand, they're global trouble-makers like Pakistan. But on the other hand, tend to be well educated and more affluent than the typical global trouble maker.

zzm, I think your comment was meant to represent a view that the immigration authorities might take on a specific country's government. I wouldn't want that be (mis?) interpreted as an opinion about everyone originating from the country(s) in question. Obviously not everyone from Iran and Pakistan are "trouble makers". The folks I know from those places are fine upstanding people, who generally despair at what is going on back in their homeland and the actions that the governments take.
Be careful what you wish for

Oh sorry yes; re-reading what I wrote it definitely came across bad. I was trying to say basically that Iran (minus its government) is much more advanced than people would typically believe based on news media reports of its governments antics. Sorry if I offended anyone, that was the opposite of my intent.
