Iran Travel Insurance

Do I need travel insurance for my trip to Iran? Is it obligatory? Is it expensive? or How can I get it?
Don’t get in a fluster, we are here to answer all your questions.

Absolutely, it is necessary to have travel insurance for your trip to Iran; firstly, that’s because you can not get your Iran Visa from the Iran embassy in your country or the visa office at the airport without having a valid travel insurance, and secondly, having a legitimate travel insurance will protect you against unexpected events and also maintain good memories of your travel.
If you are a travel enthusiast, you already have travel insurance. However most of the well-known insurers do not cover Iran due to the political tensions and sanctions. Thus, if you want to use your existing travel insurance, make sure that it covers “Iran”.  If you can not find Iran in their list, no wonder. Based on the travelers’ review, IATI and True Traveller are the international insurance companies that cover Iran. However, please consider that we do not have any responsibility for using or buying insurance from these two companies.

In order to get another travel insurance, you can have it in advance or you can buy it from the Iran Embassy in your country or visa office at the airport when you arrive in the country. Please consider that by providing the insurance in advance, you will probably pay less and you will not be bothered in the queues.  Another problem with the Insurance provided at the airport is that you can’t find any details about the conditions and coverage of the insurance.
