Iran Travel Advice
🗓️ Best Time to Visit
Temperatures during the summer months in Iran can get extremely hot and humid. So it’s definitely best to visit during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November).
Despite what most of what the Western media says and despite the recent tensions between the USA and Iran, Iran is actually a pretty safe place to visit for tourists, though there are certain areas of course that should be avoided (e.g. areas that border Iraq and Afghanistan). It is important to note that due to sanctions, some travel insurers do not provide coverage for Iran.
