Iran is (not) yet a prevailing tourism destination and therefore preparations might be more important than you are used to. On this page you can find all the practical information for a safe but adventurous trip to Iran.
The official currency is Rial. The prices are indicated with Rial but orally stated as Thoman. This is the Rial divided by ten. For example 100.000 Rial is 10.000 Thoman. Please note that it’s not possible to pay by pin in Iran. Creditcards are also not accepted in most cities. If you want to bring extra money for yourself make sure it’s cash. We advise you to bring € 50,- euro or dollar bills in order to easily change them.
Do ask for permission in case you would want to take pictures of the locals. It’s prohibited to take pictures of government buildings, military buildings and the military.
