  • Hotel booking - The conference organisers will reserve rooms for all participants. If you wish to make your own arrangement, please let us know.

  • When you check-in, the hotel staff will ask for your passport.

    • For participants whose accommodation costs are covered by the organisers as mentioned in the invitation letter, you must leave your passport with the hotel overnight. The hotel will return your passport the next day, in exchange for another ID card (e.g. National ID card or driving license).

    • For participants who are paying their own hotel charges, the hotel will keep your passport only overnight if you make full payment when checking in. The hotel will return your passport the next day, in exchange for another ID card (e.g. National ID card or driving license). If you want to make payment upon check-out, the hotel will keep your passport during your entire stay at the hotel.

Due to the fluctuation of the currency, the precise USD cost is difficult to predict. It is advised that you check the rate closer to your travel dates. The exchange rate as of October 10 is 1USD equivalent to 130,000 Iranian Rials.

  • Hotel payment can be made in USD, EU or Iranian Rial only.   We recommend you change money to local currency at the bank located near hotel reception and make payment in Rial as the hotel’s rates are significantly lower. As noted previously, you cannot use your credit card or ATM card in Iran – only cash.
