National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle rejser til grænseområderne til Irak, Afghanistan og Pakistan, til Sistan-Baluchistan-provinsen og til den østlige del af Kerman-provinsen pga. en meget høj risiko for terror og kidnapning. Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til resten af landet pga. en høj sikkerhedsrisiko som følge af den seneste tids hændelser i regionen. Hvis du opholder dig i Iran, bør du overveje, hvorvidt det er nødvendigt. Hvis ikke, bør du overveje at udrejse. Du bør holde dig på afstand af alle militære anlæg. Du bør også holde dig på afstand af demonstrationer og lignende, da det kan udvikle sig voldeligt. Du bør holde dig opdateret om den aktuelle sikkerhedssituation via de lokale myndigheder, nyhedsmedierne og dit rejseselskab. Du bør altid følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger. I Kina har der været udbrud af lungebetændelse (COVID-19) med en ny type coronavirus siden december 2019. Smittetilfælde er siden blevet registreret i flere andre lande, heriblandt Iran. I Iran har der været flere udbrud med lokal smittespredning, hvilket har medført et skærpet sundhedsberedskab. Sundhedsstyrelsen anbefaler, at du er opmærksom og følger de lokale myndigheders anvisninger. Du bør også følge Sundhedsstyrelsens råd til rejsende og orientere dig i Sundhedsstyrelsens FAQ om coronavirus.Nye smittetilfælde registreres løbende af Det Europæiske Center for Sygdomsforebyggelse og Kontrol (ECDC). Du kan også læse mere om udviklingen i COVID-19 i udlandet hos Statens Serum Institut.De lokale myndigheder har implementeret tiltag for at inddæmme smittespredningen. De lokale tiltag omfatter bl.a. lukningen af flere skoler og universiteter samt offentlige arrangementer. De lokale myndigheder kan implementere nye tiltag, heriblandt interne rejserestriktioner, med kort varsel. Du bør altid følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger. Du kan blive screenet for sygdomssymptomer. Hvis du har sygdomssymptomer, kan de lokale myndigheder implementere forebyggende tiltag, heriblandt isolation. Du bør altid følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger. Flere flyforbindelser til/fra Iran er indstillet. Flere nabolande har lukket landegrænsen til Iran. Det bliver derfor sværere at rejse ud af Iran. Du bør holde dig opdateret om udviklingen via de lokale myndigheder, nyhedsmedierne og dit rejse- eller flyselskab.
