"Some of the spies had fallen into a "visa trap" set up by the CIA for Iranians wanting to travel to the US, Mr Alavi said, adding: "Some were approached when they were applying for a visa, while others had visas from before and were pressured by the CIA in order to renew them."

Others had been enticed by offers of money, lucrative jobs and medical services, he said.

Iran's Press TV channel has aired a documentary about the cracking of a "CIA network".

Last month, Iran said it had dismantled a network linked to the CIA, but it is unclear whether Monday's announcement was related to the same case."

BBC

"Iranians may make appointments and apply for non-immigrant visas at any non-immigrant visa issuing post. However, if you do not speak English or a language commonly spoken in the country where you plan to apply, you should be aware that the interviewing officers’ lack of familiarity with local conditions in your country may make it more difficult to demonstrate your qualifications for a visa. We have Farsi-speaking consular officers in Dubai, Yerevan and Ankara, and many Iranian non-immigrant visa applicants choose to apply at those posts."

Yah, it seems credible that the CIA may have been using visa applicants as a recruiting pool and may be channeling applicants to specific offices.

"
The Report of Iran capturing CIA spies is totally false. Zero truth. Just more lies and propaganda (like their shot down drone) put out by a Religious Regime that is Badly Failing and has no idea what to do. Their Economy is dead, and will get much worse. Iran is a total mess!
