Safety and Security

Do not travel.

There is widespread community transmission of COVID-19 in Iran. There have been many deaths. The health care system will likely struggle to cope with a large outbreak. Airlines are reducing or stopping flights into and out of Iran. Medical evacuation is not likely to be possible. If you’re in Iran, leave while commercial options are available. Some countries have put in place restrictions on travellers coming out of Iran. The Foreign Minister has directed the departure of non-essential Australian embassy staff and dependants. The Australian Embassy remains operational. We've changed our level of advice for Iran: Do not travel to Iran due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The security situation remains volatile and there's a high risk you could be arbitrarily detained or arrested.
