Travel Advice:
Avoid non-essential travel

Travel advice validity period:
From 25/10/2022

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all non-essential travel to Iran and informs Cypriot citizens planning to travel to Iran that currently there are ongoing demonstrations in the country that make the security situation unstable.

Therefore, Cypriot citizens planning to travel to Iran are or residing in the country should monitor developments regularly and follow the advice of the authorities, in particular in relation to local restrictions, customs and traditions.

Gatherings, visiting prohibited areas and taking photographs in sensitive areas, should be avoided.

If you are a dual Cypriot citizen who enters Iran on a non-Cypriot passport, be aware that Iran does not recognise dual nationality and as a result, the ability of the Republic of Cyprus authorities to provide consular assistance to dual nationals is very limited.
