Hi

Iran is entirely disconnected from the international banking system. No foreign card will work, at all.

They have their own system (called Shetab).

You have to bring all money in cash ! If you run out of money, there’s no ATM or easy way to get money.

In Tehran around Ferdowsi square there are some exchanges which gives you cash using a card (they use a foreign POS) for a 25% commission.

Ps. Even if the embargo was cancelled, they’re still financially disconnected.
Even tho, Iran is one of the most cashless societies :slight_smile:
