SIM Card in Iran

Buy a SIM Card in Iran

Imam Khomeini International Airport is the first place you can buy a SIM Card in Iran/Tehran

Generally, there are 3 main operators in Iran:
1) Irancell
2) RighTel
3) Hamrah-e-Aval

All three operators provide beneficial services for foreign travelers who want to have a SIM card in Iran which has 3G and 4G services and the opportunity to talk with friends and family.

IRANCELL SIM card:
Postpaid (iSIM) , Prepaid, Data SIM
You can easily buy a MTN IRANCELL SIM card for 5 USD at the very first moments you arrive at Imam Khomeini International Airport. Internet speed is almost 3G or 4G. So you can check your emails, social network accounts, download files etc.
The only thing you need to do is to show your passport.
After activating your SIM Card, you can use internet services easily with high speed.
There are lots of Internet, message and call packages you can use.
The speed is also good enough for a video call with your friends in your country.

irancell.ir provides you with more information about Irancell services.

RighTel
RighTel provides 3G and 4G internet services as well. You can use WhatsApp, imo, check your emails and watch videos online easily.
As a foreign traveler, you can buy Rightel SIM card from the central office located at Shahid Navab-e Safavi Metro Station, Line 2 (Exit: West Azarbayejan Street).
You should have your ORIGINAL PASSPORT WITH A VALID IRANIAN VISA on your own (Note: Photocopy is not acceptable).
The staff also may ask you some general information about yourself and your accommodation. Be patient and answer the questions to have your SIM Card easily. Remember to have your postal code with yourself.
Internet will be activated instantly after you have activated your SIM Card.
You will have 100% coverage in every spot in Tehran. The coverage in other "main cities" is good as well. (The coverage might be weak just in metro stations in Tehran)

Note: Have your PIN code and the card case with yourself; you might need it. There is a possibility that the SIM card will be locked when you reboot your phone.
Which one is better for a foreigner in Iran?
If you only need to check one or two emails per day, use WhatsApp or line, go for Irancell only.
If you want to have a high speed internet and easy purchase and 100% coverage in Tehran, I suggest IranCell.
You can easily buy it, use different packages, check your emails, check your social networks, your Twitter and Facebook accounts, have video calls, etc.
You want more Information? Persian Hostel staff will help you choose the best SIM Card to use in Iran, and also they can guide you on purchasing of SIM Card. Here we also sell and activate you SIM card readily.
