Emergencies during traveling are commonplace for foreign visitors and can occasionally have serious consequences; therefore we recommended foreign visitors choose a travel agency that offers you comprehensive, 24-hour back-up for emergencies. Besides arranging a decent insurance cover, it is also useful to know how to deal with some common emergencies yourself. The following are common questions that frequently arise:

Who should I ask for help if I mislay my passport?

Ask your guide for help and report the loss to the nearest Police Office immediately, who will then issue you with a certificate of loss. You will need to apply for a new passport in person at the nearest embassy or consulate of your own country, where you will usually be required to fill in a lost passport application. With the new passport issued, you need to go to the Police Office to get a new Visa for Iran, then you can continue your visit or leave Iran. Remember that the relevant departments are usually closed on Friday and Iranian Holidays.
