Anything else[edit]

I have to explain a little, I got additional scholarship and since the embassy is closed in Iran the WMF agreed to pay the money for travel to UAE and wait there until the result come (because as regulations passports have to be in the embassy during the visa process). So I had to stay in UAE for 23 days. My flights were the exactly one day before the visa appointment and one day after collecting passports. I had a presentation in Wikimania 2014 and because of my track of travels I was hopeful to get the visa but it didn't happen and I couldn't participate in Wikimania 2014.
