Travel Guide

General Information about the Iranian visa

Here is some general information about the Iranian visa and how to get it:

Visitors to Iran must obtain a visa from one of the Iranian diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries or countries eligible for visa on arrival. All visitors must hold a passport valid for at least 6 months.

Getting tourist visa to Iran are getting easier and easier and Iran is making a lot of progress, hoping to host 20 million visitors in 2025 with easy visa procedures. Visa on arrival is possible for many citizens, for a duration of 15 days, while more countries are getting the visa-free treatment.

Iran visa Required documents:

– Two completed visa application forms

 – Valid passport, for at least 6 months

 – 3 recent photos (size 3x4cm)

 – Visa fee

 – Return envelope with address and prepaid postage to cover cost of registered mail.

 

Here are a few tips to specify and describe the dress code in Iran:

Gentlemen! Shorts are not acceptable in public.
Wearing ties or bows and T-shirts is all right.

Ladies!        You don’t have to worry about maintaining your hijab all the time. Normally the maximum penalty for disregarding the Hijab rule is a simple request (usually in a kind way) by police or authorities to make it correct.

There are some minimum requirements for female traveler’s dress-code in public places:

Color: It’s only a rumor that wearing must be dark in Iran. There is no limitation in this case and we recommend you use light colors especially in summer.

Head: Although hair must be covered but it does not mean you should have a tight scarf around your head.  It’s quite acceptable for women to let some of their hair fall freely. You can also use appropriate hats & caps as well as scarves. The scarf is the most common covering for head and it’s called “Roosari” in Persian.

Body: Body and arms should be covered by loose clothes called a Manteau which is similar to a light overcoat…

What do Iranians eat? Due to the range of culinary traditions across the Iranian provinces, food in Iran is extremely diverse. Common to all the Iranian provinces however, is the fact that Iranian food tends to be both healthy and nutritious.

It includes a wide variety of foods ranging from Chelow Kebab (rice served with roasted meat), Khoresht (stew served Iranian rice: Ghormeh Sabzi, Gheimeh, Fesenjān, and others), Āsh (a thick soup: for example Āsh-e anār), Kuku (vegetable soufflé), Polo (rice alone or with addition of meat and/or vegetables and herbs, including Loobia Polo, Albaloo Polo, Sabzi Polo, Zereshk Polo, Baghali Polo and others), and a diverse variety of salads, pastries, and drinks specific to different parts of Iran. The list of Persian recipes, appetizers and desserts is extensive.

Water and soft drinks

Iran has a wide pipeline system around the country, and the water is fresh, clean and cheap, However, due to the different water filtration system in Iran, it’s recommended that tourists use bottled water for drinking and tap water for washing.

No matter whether it’s a coke, pepsi, fruit juice, dairies or islamic beer, soft drinks in Iran are sold typically served in bottles and rarely in cartons.

Currency, Rials or Tomans?

Iranian money, Rials or Tomans? Usually, this is what confuses almost every traveller in Iran. Yes, we have two common currencies in Iran. The first and the official currency is Iranian Rial (Rls or ریال) and the currency people use informally, is Tomans. Basically, each Toman is equal to 10 Rials. So, 1000 Tomans equals to 10,000 Rials.

Iranians use Rials in banknotes, coins, official deals and use Tomans informally. Rials are the printed and Tomans are the discussed currencies. So, when you want to buy something at a store, pay for taxi and shopping, you are facing Tomans, not Rials.

shopping

When shopping, you’ll be happy to hear that Iranians are an honest lot. Double-pricing for foreigners isn’t widespread except in hotels where Iranians get a cheaper rate than tourists. In shops you generally don’t have to worry about being overcharged and bargaining isn’t common outside of the bazaars. Tourists were once charged higher rates to enter historical sites and museums but now prices are the same for everyone.
