Due to the restrictions made on visa permits by the United States, the super-aesthetic and perfectly muscular Iranian bodybuilder Behrooz Tabani can’t join Mr. Olympia’s 2023 competition, just like last year. He’s trained by a pro coach, Milos Sarcev, and it’s a pity for bodybuilding to miss out on such a talented person.

Samereh Salehi, CEO of Visadaa, recently posted a petition started by Behrooz Tabani on her official Instagram account with the caption “Mr. Olympia 2023 I want to kindly ask all my friends to sign this petition for Mr. Behrooz Tabani. Please sign it as soon as you can, time is very tight!”

Bodybuilding coach Milos Sarcev shared updates on the Iranian bodybuilder’s visa on his Instagram account @milossarcev using two pictures. In the previous year, Tabani participated in the 2022 Romania Muscle Fest Pro in November. He secured the gold medal by defeating Brett “The Butcher” Wilkin, earning the final Men’s Open Mr. Olympia qualification for that season. Nevertheless, when it was time for Tabani to compete in the Mr. Olympia, he faced visa denial, preventing him from traveling to the United States.

This season, Tabani won the 2023 Arnold Classic South America, which qualified him for the Olympia contest. There’s a chance he might not make it to the Olympia contest in Orlando, Florida, from November 2 to November 5. Milos Sarcev took to his official Instagram account to show support for Tabani.

In the caption, Sarcev wrote, “@behrooz_tabani in Dubai…Visa situation: APPLICATION IS SUBJECT TO ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING that can take days or even – months!” Even in 2021, Ukrainian bodybuilder Vlad Suhoruchko couldn’t join the Mr. Olympia contest because they denied his visa.
