Iran is often the favourite country of our teams.
"Iran itself was the highlight of the trip: beautiful scenery, tasty food and most importantly, unbelievably friendly locals."
-Mike, Monocled Mongols
Where are you from?
People from the UK and USA are treated with more suspicion than others. From 2014 UK, USA and CA citizens have only been allowed through Iran as part of a tour group.
The religion and culture
Iran is a Muslim country with strict Islamic laws. Be aware of these laws and respect them fully.
Carnet de Passage
You will need one of these to drive through Iran. This is a customs document allowing you to temporarily import your vehicle.
Going through Iran will increase the costs of your rally, especially if you're one of those who needs a tour guide.
