Iran is a safe country for foreign travelers and feels safer there than in most travel destinations. Again, Iranians are caring and will do everything possible to help you if needed.
However, here are a few tips:
– As in many other countries in the world, it is forbidden to take pictures of military buildings, official buildings, as well as sites monitored by the police and / or the army.
– Make sure to always keep your money and valuables with you
– Always have a photocopy of your passport when you go out or take a picture of it with your smartphone, as hotels and guest houses ask to leave it at reception when you check in. Don’t worry, just leave it with confidence.
– There are police and military stations in every city in the country. The police are present but very discreet, which reinforces security. For the sites most frequented by travelers, there is even a tourist police dedicated to travelers.
