Entry & Exit Formalities


Passport Office Walk past the young, bored, machine-gun-toting guards into the concrete bunker with your fingers crossed. Extensions (IR375,000) should now be granted routinely, though not if you have more than just a few days left on your current visa. Good luck!


Daghoughi Exchange Fast and easy exchange office on Buali St.



Telephone Office Take a shuttle taxi down Shari’ati St.

Tourist Information

Ali Sadr Travel Agency Although it's a commercial agency, the English-speaking staff are super friendly and happy to answer general questions.

Hamadan Cultural Heritage Organisation Staff members speak minimal English but merrily load up visitors with beautiful books and pamphlets as though it were Christmas. It’s located in a delightful Qajar mansion with gardens.
