She applies for a visa, not you.

As there is no Consulate in Iran, she would need to go somewhere where there is. That would depend on which was most convenient and would accept her application.

I understand your frustration. She will have to travel to either Ankara or the other place that does Iran visa's (can't remember which it is now). Chances of her obtaining a visitor's visa is very, very slim.

Good luck.
