SIM card in Tehran airport

Hi,

I arrive in Tehran airport and then have to leave pretty quickly to catch a bus to Esfahan, but I need to buy a SIM card. Can I do this in the arrivals section of the aiport?

Thanks

It will be best to get it straight away, so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

Hi

The best is to buy it at the reception hall. They give an active SIM for normal price. a few dollars.

Other shops in town give it for 10 $.

Usually it is open unless you are arriving at midnight.

There's not much else apart from the SIM card booth in arrivals so it's hard to miss. It's a small airport. They also speak a little English. I got a regular SIM card there for 100,000 RIals a few weeks ago. It was activated in a couple of minutes and I never needed to get more credit just using it for a few calls within Iran and the occasional international text.
