every thing you need to know about travel to Iran (2017/02/13)

Money Exchange

Official unit of Iranian currency is Iranian Rial (IR) but “Toman” is commonly used in everyday transactions and conversations. 10 Rials is equal to 1 Toman (10 IR=1 Toman). Paying in Dollar and Euro is not uncommon and there are no restrictions with respect to the amount of foreign currency entering the country. However, if the amount exceeds 10,000 dollars, submitting a financial statement to the bank authorities on the entry points is required. According to I.R. Iran Constitution, exporting an amount exceeding 10,000 dollars (or its equivelant in other currencies) is forbidden unless a financial statement is submitted.
Banking Services and Credit Cards

ATMs and debit cards abound in Iran, but currently international credit and debit cards are not accepted. For exchange, remittance and currency conversion try banks and exchange shops (Sarafi). Recently, converting up to 5000 dollars or Euros into Iranian Rial via bank card in banking branches located in the major airports of Iran and in the vicinity of tourist hubs has become possible. Upon departure, you can reconvert your balance into dollar or Euro. To get updated with the latest information on using international credit cards in Iran, visit “www.TravelT.ir.”
