Visa Requirements

Check visa requirements well in advance and ensure you have all necessary documentation. Iran typically requires travelers to obtain a visa in advance, although some nationalities may be eligible for a visa on arrival.

Dress Code

Respect the local culture by dressing modestly, especially for women. For women, this usually means wearing a headscarf, long sleeves, and loose-fitting clothing that covers the body.

Language

Learn a few basic phrases in Persian (Farsi). While many Iranians speak English, especially in tourist areas, knowing some Persian will enhance your experience and interactions with locals.

Currency

The official currency of Iran is the Iranian Rial (IRR). It's advisable to carry cash as international credit and debit cards are not widely accepted due to banking restrictions. Be aware of the current exchange rate and exchange money at official exchange offices or banks.

Photography

While photography is generally allowed in tourist areas, it's best to ask for permission before taking photos of people, especially women. Avoid taking photos of sensitive government buildings or military installations.

Transportation

Iran has an extensive network of buses, trains, and domestic flights, making it relatively easy to travel between cities. Consider booking tickets in advance, especially during peak travel seasons.

Safety

Iran is generally a safe destination for travelers. However, exercise normal precautions and stay updated on current events. Follow local news and government advisories.
