Iran safety

Iran Safety for Tourism

Safety :
In general, Iran is the safest country in the Middle East. Iran is much safer than Westerners might expect. Most people are genuinely friendly and interested to know about you and your country, so leave aside your preconceptions and come with an open mind. Iran is still a relatively low-crime country, although thefts and muggings have been on the increase in recent years. Keep your wits about you, and take the usual precautions against pickpockets in crowded bazaars and buses.

Only use official taxis, and never allow ‘officials’ to make impromptu searches when crossing the roads, and even greater care is advised for those driving on them Iranian drivers tend to overtake along pavements and any section of the road where there is space.
Travellers should avoid the southeastern area of Iran, particularly the province of Sistan via Baluchistan.

The drug trade thrives based on smuggling heroin from Afghanistan. Some cities, such as Zahedan, Zabol and Mirjaveh are particularly dangerous, although not every place in this region is dangerous.

Chabahar, which is close to the Pakistani border, is a very calm and friendly city. If staying in the capital Tehran, always avoid the southern part of Tehran.

Due to high poverty, these areas are often dangerous and should not be visited unless necessary. Avoid areas like Javadieh, Shush, Robat Karim and Anbar left. Otherwise, Tehran is a reasonably safe city.
