Iran tours from Singapore

Visit Iran as an Singaporean

Singapore has good diplomatic relations with Iran with Iran and Singapore citizens can visit the country without any limitations. and Singapore citizens can book Iran tour packages from Singapore or travel to Iran independently to Iran from Singapore .

Preparing for Travel to Iran as an Singaporean

Visit Iran as an Singaporean for tourism purposes required to have a Visa. Fortunately effective from 01 October 2015, holders of normal passports issued by Singapore are eligible for Iran Visa on Arrival.  If you prefer to get Iran Visa in advance you can get an approval code in advance.

There is no any direct flight from Singapore to Iran, so currently, you have to take a transit flight when traveling to Iran, but this will soon change.

Iran Cell Phone Service and Internet

Another technology concern to prepare for is the use of American cellphones. US companies like Sprint and Verizon doesn't have roaming services in Iran.

But you can buy a local sim at the Airport for all domestic and international calls and have a normal 3G and 4G internet on your cellphone.

We suggest you to use prepaid MTN IranCell that  is the second largest mobile phone network operator of Iran. It is 49% owned by the South Africa-based MTN Group.

Can I drink alcohol and eat pork in Iran?

Drinking alcohol is against the law in Iran and no shops are permitted to sell it. Anyone caught in possession of alcohol faces arrest and in the case of a tourist face deportation.

People in Iran tend to drink tea, Sharbat (a cool, sweet drink known as the world’s first soft drink) or doogh (a savoury yogurt drink). Alcohol free beer is also available. Pork is not available.

When it comes to meat most Iranians tend to eat chicken, beef or lamb, all of which are widely available.
