Iran, how are you?


The post-election tension in Iran is prompting some anxious questions from travellers on our Middle East Thorn Tree branch. People are wondering if political unrest will interrupt their visa applications or movements, and others are trying to get a clear picture of what’s happening on the ground.

Here at Lonely Planet, we’re trying to determine if access to our site has been restricted in any way, and clarify what, if any, impact the situation is having on foreign travellers.

If you’ve got information to share, let us know. You can post a comment here, on Thorn Tree, or our Facebook page, or tag your message with #lp on Twitter and we will retweet it to our network of travellers.

Tell us how you are.
