Entry Visa

A citizen of a foreign country who seeks to enter Iran generally must first obtain an Iranian visa. The visa can be requested through the Iranian Embassy in the respective country or electronically (electronic visa) and receive on airport. The Congressional Secretariat issues an invitation to apply for visa, but is not responsible for approving or refusing the visa application. Also, citizens of  some countries do not need visa to enter Iran according to the relations between the two countries. Please refer to the following site for more information:

Foreign Currency Exchange
The official unit of currency is the Iranian Rial, but Iranians almost always talk in terms of Tomans, a unit equal to 10 Rials.
Please bring enough cash in Euros or US Dollars for the duration of your trip. Due to international sanctions, you cannot use credit or debit cards, travelers’ cheques or ATMs in Iran. Whichever currency you choose, the most important thing to remember is to bring as much cash as you’re likely to need, then a bit more. Currency exchange offices are located at the airport and at different locations on the country.
