Sanctions make Iran a somehow different country than other countries. None of the financial institutions nor International banks give services to Iran. hence, Tourists who travel to Iran, face a problem in doing their payments (through their usual Visa, Master Cards..)

Tourists often get confused about how to do money payments in Iran. Lonely Planet declares explicitly that you must “Bring enough cash (in US dollars or euros) for the duration of your trip. You cannot use credit or debit cards, travelers…” This problem is even bigger for solo travelers who visit rural areas and need to be more flexible while on their adventure. 

But this is not the case anymore! using IranbyBit’s services, tourists will not be forced to carry cash on themselves and they don’t have to go to currency exchanges anymore.



The banking network in Iran is a unified, fast and low-cost fee network. All payments in Iran are conducted through the unified network and our debit card is not an exception to this. This makes your payments in Iran as seamless as it can get. Maybe even easier than any other payment system you have used in any country. You can pay for your expenses on any point of sale machine in Iran, and even draw cash from ATMs, send money to others online and do online shopping with this debit card.

Iranbybit supports solo travel because this builds better relations among tourists and the local people. it bridges cultures and makes economies thrive.
