If you’re planning a trip to Iran as a tourist or temporary visitor, you may be wondering how to manage your money while you’re there. Cash is the primary mode of payment in Iran, and international credit cards are not accepted due to the economic sanctions imposed on the country. This can make it difficult for visitors to access and manage their funds while they’re in Iran.

Apply for Tourist Card

Enter the Iran Tourist Card – a prepaid debit card designed specifically for tourists and temporary visitors in Iran. With this card, you can instantly add funds in your preferred currency and use it to make purchases at shops, restaurants, and other establishments that accept card payments. You can even use it to withdraw cash from any ATM device in the country.

One of the best things about the Iran Tourist Card is that it can be delivered directly to your accommodation, saving you the time and hassle of having to go to a bank or exchange office to obtain cash. This is especially helpful if you’re arriving late at night or don’t have time to exchange currency before heading out to explore the city.
