Despite the engineered picture projected in the mainstream media, Iran has always been safe for tourists. Those who have traveled to Iran are mostly astonished by the contradiction between the real Iran and its image in the mass media.
However, regardless of the noise around these issues, Iranians haven’t let these terrible events stop them and continue to be as friendly and open as ever, welcoming travelers from all over the world.
According to the 2020 Travel Risk Map, launched by global risk experts, Iran is listed in the Medium Risk category, the same as popular destinations such as Turkey, Russia or Brazil. Checking this map in 2019, Iran was just as safe as Europe, with a Low Risk designation.

To make sure, you can take a look at the travel blogs and travelers opinions on different social media, especially TripAdvisor to find out more about the reality of Iran; a safe country for all tourists from any country and any religion around the world.
