Brief summary:
Når du rejser til Iran, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed. De fleste danskere har dog ingen problemer under besøg i Iran. Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til provinserne Kurdistan, Khuzestan og Hormozgan. Den sikkerhedsmæssige situation er så ustabil, at du bør have helt særlige grunde til at besøge områderne. Vi fraråder alle rejser til grænseområderne til Irak, Afghanistan og Pakistan, til Sistan-Baluchistan og til den østlige del af Kerman-provinsen. Der er risiko for terror og kidnapning. Hvis du vælger at rejse, bør du på forhånd søge professionel rådgivning. Der har på det seneste været militære spændinger mellem Iran, USA og andre lande i Mellemøsten. Vi anbefaler, at du holder dig på afstand af militære anlæg. Vi anbefaler, at du holder dig opdateret om den aktuelle sikkerhedssituation via de lokale myndigheder, nyhedsmedierne og dit rejsebureau. Du bør altid følge de lokale myndigheders anbefalinger.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Do not travel to Iran due to the risk of kidnapping, arrest, detention of U.S. citizens. There is a very high risk of kidnapping, arrest, and detention of U.S. citizens in Iran, particularly dual national Iranian-Americans. Iranian authorities continue to unjustly detain and imprison U.S. citizens, particularly Iranian-Americans, including students, journalists, business travelers, and academics, on charges including espionage and posing a threat to national security. Consular access to detained U.S. citizens is often denied. The U.S. government does not have diplomatic or consular relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran. The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Iran. Due to risks to civil aviation operating within or in the vicinity of Iran, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) and/or a Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR). For more information U.S. citizens should consult Federal Aviation Administration’s Prohibitions, Restrictions and Notices. Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.
