What You Will Need in Iran

 

Many travel to Iran to experience the delights of the ancient Persian Empire, yet are unaware of the limitations faced by the rules and regulations of what is now a strict Islamic Republic. As travel warnings persist and diplomatic relations with other countries continue with varying degrees of existence, many are confused by how to go about entering Iran and travelling around safely, efficiently and within the boundaries set by the current regime.
Travel to Iran doesn’t have to be difficult at all.Iran does have a strict dress code and this is one of the biggest concerns for female travellers to Iran. Most importantly – PACK A HEADSCARF IN YOUR HAND LUGGAGE. You MUST be wearing this the moment you exit the plane and are officially in Iran.
You must wear a headscarf the entire time you are there (except when in your hotel room or private indoor spaces) and loose clothing that covers your body. But let’s get one thing straight – you don’t have to wear a burka or anything that fully covers you.  When you arrive you will soon see the reality is far removed from the stereotype. Iranian women are stylish and proud of their appearance – fashion being a means to stand out and make a statement.

Visitors have a bit more flexibility when it comes to the rules.If your headscarf falls, don’t worry – quickly put it back on again. You won’t be in trouble for this, but just pay attention at all times. Wearing your hair in a high bun or ponytail helps keep the scarf in place. Many Iranian women wear it a little loose and half way back on their head, since showing a little hair is granted.
Tops must be loose-fitting and three-quarter length sleeves are ok – a little more comfortable in the heat
It is said that trousers must be baggy but some local women wear tight, brightly coloured leggings. For tourists, leggings worn with a long, loose-fitting top are accepted. However, in the more conservative areas such as Isfahan, Mashad and Qum, respect the values and revert back to looser fitting trousers.

Open toes sandals are fine. Pack some sports shoes for longer day-trips where you might be walking a lot (such as at the Persepolis). You’ll soon see how sports shoes are fashionable in Iran, especially in bright colours!
Worried you do not have enough appropriate attire? Fear not, as soon as you arrive in Tehran or even Shiraz (if you fly into there), hit the bazaars and the local markets and shop away. There’s plenty to be sought out. Other people on my trip simply stuck with two outfits and alternately hand-washed them every night
For men it’s more simple – you will be dressing much the same as you do in western countries, except no short shorts, no super short sleeves and no extreme tight-fitting clothing.
