In Iran, we have 3 operators that provide communication services.

  1. Hamrahe Aval (IR-MCI) [Turquoise]
  2. MTN Irancell [Yellow]
  3. Rightel [Violet]

I recommend you use Irancell because it’s cheaper, easier to use and also have good prices for Prepaid Sim Cards.

Official places to buying your SIM card

  • Imam Khomeini International airport – Open 24/7
  • Imam Khomeini Metro Station (inside the city) – Open Sat to Tue, 8 AM to 4 PM [Location]

  • Yes.
  • To use this SIM card you need to register first. Registration can be done by a passport ID number.
