Question: I will be travelling to Iran from the 25th December to 2nd January. I will be planning to go to Tehran, Esfahan, Yazd and Shiraz. However, I would love to ask a few questions:

1. As a Christian, am I allow to bring a Bible to Iran?
2. I have asthma, and would need to bring in medicine. Is it ok to bring in medicine, or should I only bring them in with original label? How is the custom when going through IKA airport?
3. How about photography? I have heard of the restriction of taking photographs in Iran, and I know that it is strictly prohibited to take photos of government and military installations. How are your experience in taking photos generally in Iran?
4. Are the police generally friendly in the country? Do you get any hassles from the police during your stay there?

 

Answer: 1. Christianity is a protected religion; you are allowed to practice your faith, and bring your Bible (in English or your native language) to Iran. If you bring a Bible translated into Farsi or bringing in many Bibles, it would pose problems, unless you speak Farsi, as it would be assumed you are trying to proselytize, which is forbidden.
2. Try to bring asthma medicine in its original box with the original label to Iran. Don't think it would be a problem. The customs in Iran is fast.
3. You should take care not to take photos of the sensitive areas in Iran such as the military bases, governmental offices, airfields, airports and other sensitive areas where photography is forbidden. Most of the holy shrines in Iran do not allow photography. So it is better to look for sign or ask the staff before taking photos. Ask for permission before taking photos of other people, just be respectful and discreet.
4. The police in Iran are friendly and most are either just curious about you or trying to help you out. They are just trying to protect you.

Question: I am travelling overland from Istanbul to India. I am in an excellent mercedes ambulance - have driven from uk and wanting to continue. I am a female with friends ahead in Iran.  

 

Answer: You should collect your Carnet de Passage before commencing your trip. The Carnet de Passages en Douane (CPD) is a customs document that identifies a driver's motor vehicle. Many people drive to Iran via the borders. This requires a Carnet De Passage unless you wish to pay import tax. A Carnet can be acquired from your local drivers association. An international driver's license with translation into Farsi is highly recommended. Don’t count on chance and unreliable sources.
Petrol stations can be found on the outskirts of all cities and towns and in car-filled Iran, a mechanic is never far away.
There are two borders opened to foreigners between Iran and Turkey. The first is the Gürbulak–Bazargan border near Dogubayazit (Turkey) and Sahabat (Iran) - it is the busiest. The second border crossing between Van and Khoy is called Esendere–Sero and it is further south. The road turns into a dirt road up in the mountain. It is better to make sure it is open if you're planning to cross during the winter. The road thourgh Dogubayazit is a beautiful region with the stunning view of the Mount Ararat. The road going through Esendere-Sero is even more scenic.
Mirjaveh is a locality in eastern Iran on the border with Pakistan. It is the main road crossing point between Iran and Pakistan. The Pakistani border post is at Taftan. Mirjaveh is also the point where the railway line from Pakistan crosses the border on the way from Quetta to Zahedan. The border immigration opens in the Pakistan side around 9am. There is a gate only on the Iranian side.

Question: I heard that in many Iranian roads, (especially the main highways), there are always roadblocks. Do they really check the passengers in case you are travelling on a bus? Do they usually harass tourists or foreigners?

 

Answer: Checkpoints are outside bigger cities or important crossroads, but don't actually look like roadblocks, as the passage is free and there are rarely soldiers or policemen outside checking passing vehicles.
Don’t worry because it is just routine checks. They just check for the illegal immigrants such as Afghans and also looking for drugs. If you are in east of Iran the searching is very strict but other areas they just take a look at the faces and sometime check passports.

Question: Do you know about crossing from Zahedan(Iran) to Quetta(Pakistan). Basically, i am looking for info with regards to a place to stay in Zehadan (cheap if possible) and whether you had a police escort when there..something i would rather avoid. Plus, would it be better to take a taxi from Taftan to Quetta as opposed to the bus. Any info regarding this whole process would be very much appreciated.

 

Answer: Mirjaveh is a locality in eastern Iran on the border with Pakistan. It is the main road crossing point between Iran and Pakistan. The Pakistani border post is at Taftan. Mirjaveh is also the point where the railway line from Pakistan crosses the border on the way from Quetta to Zahedan. The border immigration opens in the Pakistan side around 9am. There is a gate only on the Iranian side.
Mirjaveh is a small but relatively clean border town on the Iranian side and it has a huge guesthouse.
From Zahedan to Quetta is better to travel in a public transport with local people rather than a privately hired car so better drop the idea of hiring a private car in this particular stretch.
