 Clothing Guidelines for Tourists

In Iran, which is an Islamic country, women must comply with a set of rules known generally as “dress Code”

Although these rules are not strictly enforced on foreign tourists, all tourists should bear in mind that each country has its own regulations, and Iran is no exception.

Dress code for women:


Tunic is a good choice for women on summer trips to Iran.


Since the rule stipulates that women must cover their hair, they must wear headscarves in Iran. However, they can use lightweight and colorful headscarves.

Women’s hair and body should be covered, although there is nothing wrong with leaving some hair out.


sandales are just fine for both men and women, especially in summer .it wouldn’t make any problem to wear nail polish on the nails of both feet and hands.

Dress code for men:

Fortunately, rules are less strict for men. Men are not allowed to appear in public in shorts and underwear or items like that, but they can wear T-shirts.


Full body coverage is recommended in holy places such as mosques and the Shrine of an Imāmzādeh, an immediate descendant of a Shi’a Imam. ‘Chador’ is often provided on site for visitors and tourists.

Since Iranians value carpets, please take your shoes off in holy carpeted places.

In cold seasons, it is recommended that you take items of warm clothing with you.

All the above-mentioned rules need to be observed in public sites, but they’re quite flexible in nature tours.
