Money and Currency
Credit cards are not usable in Iran. All payments should be done in cash. For this reason, it is recommended to bring along enough cash for your stay. A currency exchange counter is available at IKA, departure level. As arrivals, you can reach this level via escalators. Exchange offices are available around Tehran city also.
“Hijab” or the Islamic dress-code is a necessity in Iran. However, such rules are not observed strictly, especially for tourists and foreigners. Basically, the rules are quite simple: for men, no short pants or extreme short sleeve and tight shirts. For women, head and hair must be covered, and it is also necessary to wear something loose to cover the body.
Foreign Languages, including English, are not very common in Iran. It is recommended to bring along a translator. If you are unable to do so and require one, kindly inform the organizers ahead of time to provide one for you. Translators are provided on daily charge basis, and the cost varies according to the selected language.
