Frequently Asked Questions

Questions and Answers About How to Travel to Iran

The currency of Iranian

The Iranian currency is Rial, the currency code for Rial is IRR, and the symbol of it is ریال.

All foreign currencies such as Euro, pound, sterling, Us dollar are changeable in Iran, ATMS in Iran don’t accept international credit cards, as a result the best way is to pay by cash.(except for some shopkeepers.)

Note: Although the official currency in Iran is Rial, Iranians tend to use Toman instead in their daily payments. So, it’s better to get familiar with them in advance in order not to be confused. For example, by eliminating one zero of 10000 Rials, it will be changed to 1000 Tomans.

Do you need insurance?

Certainly, you need to be insured before traveling to Iran. The best way is to insure yourself before departing your country.

Telecommunication in Iran

Telecommunication is not too hard in Iran because IDD service is available. There are three different operators, the suitable and well-used one in Iran is (the first operator) (Persian: همراه اول ).

Hamrah aval provides its services in all cities and supports over 70,000 kilometers of highways except some small villages in Iran. The next operators are MTN Irancell and Rightel that offer their own services, respectively. In addition, MTN Irancel and “Rightel” support *3G and 4G* internet services with high speed rate in Iran.

Dress code in Iran

According to the Islamic and social beliefs in Iran, it is necessary for women to cover their body modestly. Islamic codes can be followed by wearing a long shirt, scarf and pants.

Lavatories in Iran

Due to some differences between Iranian (Muslims) lavatories and so called western ones, there are suitable lavatories for tourists in all hotels, guest-houses, restaurant, etc. However, you would find Iranian ones in other parts of the country. So, it is recommended to get enough information in this regard.

Rainy season in Iran

Rainfall in Iran is highly seasonal, with a rainy season between October and March, leaving the land parched for the remainder of the year. Immense seasonal variations in flow characterize Iran’s rivers. For example, the Karun River in Khuzestan carries water during periods of maximum flow that is ten times the amount borne in dry periods. In numerous localities, there may be no precipitation until sudden storms, accompanied by heavy rains, dump almost the entire year’s rainfall in a few days. Water shortages are compounded by the unequal distribution of water. Near the Caspian Sea, rainfall averages about 1,280 mm per year, but in the Central Plateau and in the lowlands to the south it seldom exceeds 100 mm.

Insect Bites

Mosquitoes may not carry malaria but can cause irritation and infected bites. Using DEET-based insect repellents will prevent bites. Mosquitoes also spread dengue fever. Bees and wasps only cause real problems to those with a severe allergy (anaphylaxis). If you are allergic to bee or wasp stings, you should carry an adrenaline injection or similar.

Iran Climate

Traveling to Iran | Iran’s climate ranges from arid or semiarid, to subtropical along the Caspian coast and the northern forests. On the northern edge of the country (the Caspian coastal plain) temperatures rarely fall below freezing and the area remains humid for the rest of the year. Summer temperatures rarely exceed 29 °C (84.2 °F). To the west, settlements in the Zagros basin experience lower temperatures, severe winters with below zero average daily temperatures and heavy snowfall. The eastern and central basins are arid and have occasional deserts. Average summer temperatures exceed 38 °C (100.4 °F). The coastal plains of the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman in southern Iran have mild winters, and very humid and hot summers.

Iranian Calendar

Iranian official calendar is set according to the Solar year & Iranian months. Farvardin 1st   is the first day of Iranian New Year that equals to the 21st of March. Also in Iran, Lunar calendar is announced officially. Lunar year is 10 days less than Solar year. Days of performing religious rites are adjusted according to Lunar calendar. So each year is different from next & upcoming years. Therefore, it is recommended to arrange your proper traveling time with related agencies. Especially, Iranian muslims daily activities are affected in Ramadan month because they are fasting. Some days are public holidays in these two months. Friday is considered as an official holiday.

Iranian Culture

Iranian culture has long been a predominant culture of the Middle East and Central Asia, with Persian considered the language of intellectuals during much of the 2nd millennium, and the language of religion and the populace before that. The Sassanid influence carried forward to the Islamic world.Much of what later became known as Islamic learning, such as philology, literature, jurisprudence, philosophy, medicine, architecture and the sciences were based on some of the practices taken from the Sassanid Persians to the broader Muslim world.

How long can extend visa?

You can pretend to visa extension only once if you got your visa at the airport “Visa On Arrival”. In theory, you are able to extend your visa for 15 supplementary days, which means double your original visa (from 15 to 30 days).

In practice, you can see your demand getting deny or to see yourself given less than the duration you asked for. The extension refusal is still random, and can only depend on the mood of the agent in front of you. Nevertheless, it seems much easier to extend your visa if you had previously obtain it prior to your arrival in Iran, meaning the original 30 days visa that you can get from your embassy. You can extend it one or two times which means a 30 days visa can become a 90 days visa thanks to 2 extensions.

Where can extend visa?

You can extend your visa in any major cities in Iran (Tehran, Shiraz, Isfahan, Yazd, Mashhad and many more). You will have to go to the “Police Office of Foreign Affairs”. Feel free to ask advice to our agency or to your hotel to get to this address and know the opening hours. We would rather warn you that this office can be a little chaotic, depending of the town.

Medical Services in Iran

Accidents are one of the main reasons that people are looking for medical help to treat it. If you are unlucky enough to need a hospital, Iran is home of the best doctors in the Middle East. Many doctors have been trained in Europe or North America and especially in the larger cities. You won’t have too much trouble finding an English-speaking person. In more remote areas, medical facilities are more basic.
