Buying a SIM card in Iran

Local SIM Cards: Currently, there are three major mobile phone providers in Iran: Hamrah-e-Aval, Irancell and RighTel.

Sim cards can be purchased at any official mobile operator store or authorized reseller, and it’s advisable to bring your passport as a form of identification.

The average price for a sim card is around 15,000 IRR (Iranian Rial), and prepaid plans are available with varying amounts of data and minutes.

Travelers can use Iranian SIM cards on their phones for a maximum of 30 days (since the first day of using the SIM card) without registering.

If you’re among the travellers who plan to use an Iranian SIM card for more than 30 days, you must register your phone at the airport’s customs office after paying an import tax for the device which will be determined by customs’ officials.

When purchasing a sim card, it is recommended to avoid buying an expensive one at the airport or in the last minute, as prices tend to be higher and you may be limited in your options.  Travel to iran?
