Visa fee is reciprocal, as in if a Chinese are coming US, he/she will pay at least the same amount and with Letter of Invite, or perhaps even more stringent circumstantial requirements.

I tried few months ago to get an Iranian Visa, as a US passport holder, I can be allowed to apply guided tourist visa. A guide will cost about 70 euro per day. A friend holding UK passport was allowed to apply unguided tourist visa.

I traveled many countries that required visa. It is time consuming to queue from 6am in the morning but it is part of the experience. The worst you can do is to use an agent.
