With increased travel to the country, domestic carriers like Air Iran will soon up their game
The Country’s Getting New Aircraft
For frequent flyers, this is big news. Major carriers like Air France, Emirates and Etihad, and budget airlines like Fly Dubai and Gulf Air already fly into Tehran. But domestic travel has always been sketchy, with a safety record that’s far from perfect. The head of Iran’s civil aviation agency recently announced that once western sanctions are lifted, the country plans to buy 80-90 new planes per year, from both Boeing and Airbus. The move would completely overhaul Iran’s domestic fleet, which has an average age of 23 years, more than double the international average
If you visit Iran, don’t miss the magnificent ruins at Persepolis
There are Incredible Historical Sites
Iran has 19 sites designated as World Heritage Sites by the UN (with another 49 listed as “tentative”). The list includes historical monuments like the Golestan Palace, situated right in the heart of Tehran, and the ancient Tabriz Bazaar, once a key trading stop on the Silk Road. Others include entire cities like Bam, which was decimated by an earthquake in 2003, and the well-preserved ruins of Persepolis, dating back all the way to 500 BC
Iran may soon be allowed back into SWIFT, which allows banks to transfer money internationally
One of the most inconvenient things about traveling to Iran is the absence of international banking options. It’s a cash-based economy, and you’ll wind up carrying wads of Iranian toman to pay for stuff. That could change once Iran is allowed back into the SWIFT exchange system. SWIFT is what allows banks to transfer money internationally. (If you’ve ever made a wire transfer between countries, you probably used it.) Re-entry into the SWIFT system would make overseas money transfers as easy as clicking a button. It could also lead to foreign credit cards and ATMs being used once again
It’s not easy to get a tourist visa for Iran — but it’s definitely possible
It’s Not Straightforward, But It’s Possible to Get a Visa
To get a tourist visa, you’ll have to be sponsored by an approved individual, group or travel agency, who will take legal responsibility for your stay in the country. The most common way is to use a travel agency (based in UK, UAE, etc.). All they’ll need is for you to fill out a form and send them a scanned copy of your passport. The cost is usually around £25-35 ($39-54). Since there’s no Iranian embassy in the US, you’ll have to put down on the form where you intend to collect the visa once it’s approved.
Two of the most common visa pickup locations are Istanbul and Abu Dhabi, both of which have daily flights to Tehran. Be warned: Once the visa has been approved, it can be difficult to change the pickup location.
Another way is to find a trade or business convention you’d like to attend, and ask them to sponsor your travel. Americans can’t get individual visas, so (officially) you’ll have to be part of a tour or business group. The silver lining is that the group can consist of just two people. The application process is supposed to take five to 10 business days.
