Unfortunately, Iran represents a high risk of terrorism, where attacks can even occur in places visited by foreign tourists. There is also a risk of British Nationals, and an increased risk for British/Iranian dual nationals, being wrongfully detained when visiting Iran. Consequently, it is extremely important that travellers buy Iran Travel Insurance with sufficient travel cover before travelling. Especially as many ‘standard’ travel insurance policies will exclude travel to certain areas of Iran which the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) may advise against “all or all but essential travel” to. Fortunately, High Risk Voyager Iran Travel Insurance can provide travel cover for wrongful detention and to these areas where other travel insurance policies can't.

In addition to the increased risk of terrorism and wrongful detention, it is important to understand that Iran has no reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK or the European Union. This means that you will not be able to use your GHIC in case of a medical emergency whilst visiting Iran. Consequently, you will be required to pay all costs associated with any emergency medical treatment you may require if you do not have the correct travel insurance for Iran.

On 14th April 2024, The FCDO advised “against all travel” to Iran, and as of 25th April 2024 this advices is still in force. As Iran doesn't recognise duel nationality, the FDCO also advises that “British-Iranian dual nationals" are at a much higher risk of wrongful detention and arrest. These travel advisories can change from day to day, so Click here to see the latest FCDO travel advice for Iran.

Fortunately, High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance for Iran can provide cover to the areas mentioned above and more as it is a specialist travel insurance solution for high risk and frontline locations that can provide travel cover even to areas the FCDO advise “against all but essential travel” or “all travel”. This FCDO rating would usually invalidate a normal ‘standard’ type travel insurance policy.
