Iran in May

Jump to last reply

Hello all, I'm an american citizen and have traveled quite a bit at this point. I've been interested in going to Iran for a while now, but there's always something up politically or a different place to go instead. I'm thinking of taking a guided tour of Iran in May. I called the embassy and they said that if I have an authorization from the tour company, then they will give me a visa. The tour agency said they will get the authorization form for me. So, I guess, the logistics are in place.

I have yet to book the trip. I'm hesitant only because for whatever reason, I don't want to get detailed for being an american citizen. I know the chances of that happening are next to nothing, but still in this day and age, anything is possible.

Am I being paranoid given the circumstances, or smart?

Question - Would you go on a tour of Iran in the next few months? I could consider waiting until the travel ban is sorted, but then I feel something else will come up.
