Insurance for traveling to Iran
Getting insurance might be a bit challenging since not all insurance companies don`t cover Iran. However IATI insurance is recommended for traveling to Iran with full COVID-19 coverage. Even if you do not have provided insurance beforehand, you can get one at the airport which the price ranges from $16 to $36 depending on the length of your stay.
Currency of Iran
Iran`s official currency is Rial but for everyday purchase people use Tooman (10.000 Rial = 1000 Tooman). Don`t worry about it since Tooman is always used everywhere you will get used it and nobody uses Rial in everyday life. You can exchange your money at the airport of numerous exchange centers scattered all over Tehran and other cities. If your money is in dollar then well, good for you! Because Iran`s money value compared to dollar is in the lowest scenario possible ($1 USD= 30.000 Tooman) that`s why traveling to Iran is unbelievably cheap and fun!
Also keep in mind that foreign credit cards don`t work in Iran and you have carry cash (you can open an account and put you money in the bank and then get a credit card, though it may take long and if you are staying for a short time it`s better to just use cash and be careful with it).
