People traveling to Iran always complain about the absence of international electronic banking services including MasterCard and Visa card ATMs in our country. The fact is Iran itself has great national banking system and the Iranian debit cards and ATMs work for Iranians perfectly. But the international debit/credit cards such as MasterCard and Visa don’t work in Iran due to American sanctions against Iranian banking system. This poses a serious problem for tourists. Their bank cards being useless, they have no choice but to carry large amounts of cash all the time. While they'll definitely enjoy their Iran tour, the risks are obvious. They may lose the cash or get robbed (Iran is one of the safest countries in the world, but it is wise to be on the safe side). What can be done to tackle this seemingly insurmountable problem? The answer is Iran tourist card called 7 Debit Card.
Our untiring staff at SevenHostels Group always come up with new ideas to ease the course of tourism in Iran by taking away the complications. Here we present our latest development regarding the above-mentioned difficulties: 7 Debit Card. This new project will provide you with great services, all of which designed in such a way to address the main issues related to money and financial transactions in Iran. 7 Debit Cards, issued under your own name, are the perfect substitute for cash especially for those visitors who intend to spend a long time in the country. Aside from Iranian debit cards, we also offer money transfer service using which you won’t need to worry about how to send money from/to Iran; by filling out a form on our website and making an online payment, you can easily send money to whatever Iranian bank account you desire. How about online shopping and booking services you might ask?

Now that you have a general picture of our services, let’s take a closer and detailed look.
The first service we offer is Iranian debit card known as 7 Debit Card. The process is simple and straightforward.

Another common cause of dissatisfaction concerning financial transactions is the issue of transferring money to Iran. It is often the case with the tourists who miscalculate their budget and run out of money in Iran. What can be done then? Here SevenHostels Group is proud to introduce the second service of its new project. The process looks similar to that of ordering 7 Debit Card; you fill out a request form (link below) including the desired amount of money and the target Iranian bank account number. The target bank account could be that of a hotel, an Iranian trustworthy friend (easy to find), etc. Soon after receiving the order, we’ll send you a payment request to be made by using MasterCards or Visa cards, and immediately after receiving the payment, we’ll transfer the amount to the target Iranian bank account.
As with most of the countries in the world online services are getting more and more popular in Iran. But at the moment these services are only available for people with bank accounts in Iranian banks. What if a tourist visiting Iran wants to book tickets (plane, train, or bus), hotels or buy goods online? Well, here is where we offer our third service; you fill out the special form regarding booking online services (link below), specify the desired service (can be booking hotels, tickets, etc) in the form’s textbox, you receive a payment request, and soon after making the payment you'll have the service booked.
Exchanging money in Iran is very easy. You just need to go to one of the many official currency exchanges in Tehran or any other major city in Iran. But if you are in Tehran, the process is even simpler. You can go to Ferdowsi square, a plaza invaded by currency exchanges! Once there, you will know the latest exchange rates by checking the rates at the window displays. Thus, contrary to other financial aspects, money exchange isn’t a bit challenging in Iran.
Using ATMs is widely common in Iran. But for using such services, you will need a bank account in one of the banks in Iran. As mentioned above, SevenHostels Group has founded a new way to go beyond this problem and that is 7 Debit Card. By ordering one of these cards you can withdraw cash from all ATM machines across the country. Working with ATM machines is the same as any country. You will select the language, enter your code and opt for your desired service. You can also choose to get a receipt at the end of the process.
As mentioned above, in Iran you cannot use international debit cards for daily purposes. So once in Iran, your Visa card is practically useless. But no worries, since our services at SevenHostels Group will cover all the advantages of a Visa card in Iran plus many other perks including money transfer and online shopping. And if you ever need cash, find the nearest ATM. Insert your 7 Debit Card, go through the process and withdraw as much as you need. As a reminder, be careful not to confuse Toman for Rial or vice versa! For further information on that subject refer to the concluding paragraph on the current page.
Surfing through the comments section on any Iranian tourism websites, you will come across hundreds of questions such as: Can I use my MasterCard in Iran? Is Visa card valid in Iran? Does PayPal work in Iran? Well the answer to all such questions is unfortunately negative. International credit cards including MasterCard and Visa card don’t work in Iran. The same goes with other international services such as PayPal in Iran. The reason is of course American sanctions on Iranian banking system. But enough of the bad news! Here we offer you a fantastic solution to relieve you once and for all from the money-related complications in Iran. By getting a 7 Debit Card on our website, you will surpass all the challenges above. It is easy! It is practical! And it is renewable!
It is a common knowledge that Iranian currency is Iranian Rial. But the visitors often hear about another currency named Toman. That is when it starts to get puzzling. What is the official currency then? Rial or Toman? And if both exist, what is the difference between Rial and Toman? Despite the confusing word play, there is nothing complicated about all that. All notes are in Rial but Iranians usually prefer to say the prices in Toman. Just remember one simple rule: whatever the amount in Rial, drop one zero and you have the price in Toman. For example, 1000 Rials equals 100 Tomans and vice versa. It is as simple as that!
