I’m going to visit Iran this summer. I’m from Europe and I want to come to Iran in my own car. Are there any restrictions or issues with entering Iran by car? Should I have “Carnet de Passage”? What is the price and is there any way to enter Iran without it, as I only want to cross Iran within 4-5 days and that’s it? I was told that for those who only want to stay a few days, there are fees of around 150-200 €. Is this true?
All suggestions and advice are welcomed!
If you plan to cross Iran in 4-5 days you need a transit visa and of course a carnet de passage. You can call a few companies because each of them has its own policy. Instead of carnet de passage, it is also possible to pay a cash deposit at the border so that they will be sure you are leaving Iran on time. The price of purchasing this guarantee is between 400€ to 500€. Some companies hold the deposit until you leave Iran and then will return you back the deposit. In this case, the deposit is around 1000$ plus the commission fee. But it is recommended to apply for a carnet de passage beforehand. You can either get it from the company in your country or we can help you to get it at the border. Read more information about the carnet de passage to Iran for more details.
Please notice that some brands of cars like Ferrari and Maserati are not allowed to enter Iran.
