The crime rate is very low in Iran, making it a safe place for tourists to travel. One of the biggest dangers here is from vehicles, with traffic accidents poising a significant threat. Exercise caution when crossing roads and make sure that you familiarise yourself with Iranian driving etiquette before getting behind the wheel.
Avoid flashing cash or valuables about in view of others, especially at night. If you have far to go, taking a taxi is a safer option than walking alone. For a safe and troublesome visit to Iran, it is essential that you respect the Islamic laws in force. There is special “tourist police” responsible for all issues related to tourists.
However, if you encountered any problems, you should call your embassy and look out for police. You can try crying “Komak, komak” (Help, help!) or “Dozd” (Thief!).
