Marriage to an Iranian Citizen

Every country has its own laws that apply to its citizens marrying a person from a different country. Getting married to an Iranian citizen with the goal of eventually bringing them to Canada to live is a process with many steps. The Iranian government may impose requirements on foreigners who marry Iranians as an indirect way of discouraging Iranian citizens from moving to other countries.

You must demonstrate to Iranian officials that they are not currently married to anyone else - either you have never been married or all divorces are finalized - that your identity is proven, and that you have never committed any crimes in Iran. This is done by providing various documents including an Affidavit of Single Status to the Iranian government either in Iran or via an Iranian embassy.

If you want to bring your Iranian spouse or partner to live in Canada, you must then file a sponsorship application for them to become a permanent resident. If they would like to visit you in Canada while their application is in process, they must also apply for a visitor visa. For more information, please see our family sponsorship page and our visitor visa page.

Time Difference

Iran has its own special time zone, much like Newfoundland; it is GMT+3.5. Iran observes Daylight Saving Time but observes it over a slightly shorter period than Canada, so in late September and all of October, there is one hour less difference than in the chart below. Saskatchewan does not participate in DST so in the summer Iran is one hour further ahead.

Iranian Money

The rial is the currency of Iran and currently remains the world's least valued currency unit.

The name derives from the Spanish Real, which was for several centuries, the currency in Spain (derived from Spanish rey = king).



Although the "toman" is no longer an official unit of Iranian currency, Iranians commonly express amounts of money and prices of goods in "tomans." For this purpose, one "toman" equals 10 rials. Despite this usage, amounts of money and prices of goods are essentially always written in rials. For example, the sign next to a loaf of bread in a store would state the price in rials, e.g., "10,000 Rials," even though the clerk, if asked, would say that the bread costs "1,000 tomans."

There is no official symbol for the currency but the Iranian standard ISIRI 820 defined a symbol for use on typewriters (stating that it is an invention of the standards committee itself) and the two Iranian standards ISIRI 2900 and ISIRI 3342 define a character code to be used for it.

Brief History of Rial

The rial was first introduced in 1798 as a coin worth 1250 dinar or one eighth of a toman. In 1825, the rial stopped to be issued, with the qiran of 1000 dinars (one tenth of a toman) being issued as part of a decimal system. The rial replaced the qiran at par in 1932, although it was divided into one hundred (new) dinars.

Prior to decimalisation in 1932, these coins and currencies were used, and some of these terms still have wide usage in Iranian languages and proverbs


First rial

Silver coins were issued in denominations of ¼, ½ and 1 rial.

Second rial

The first coins of the second rial currency were in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10 and 25 dinar, ½, 1, 2 and 5 rial, with the ½ to 5 rial coins minted in silver. Gold coins denominated in pahlavi were also issued, initially valued at 100 rial. In 1944, the silver coinage was reduced in size, with the smallest silver coins being 1 rial pieces. This year also saw the end of minting of all denominations below 25 dinar. In 1945, silver 10 rial coins were introduced. In 1953, silver coins ceased to be minted, with the smallest denomination now 50 dinar. 20 rial coins were introduced in 1972.

After the Islamic Revolution, the currency designs were changed to remove the Shah's effigy but the sizes and compositions were not immediately changed. 50 dinar coins were only minted in 1979 and 50 rial coins were introduced in 1980. In 1992, a new coinage was introduced with smaller 1, 5, 10 and 50 rial coins and new 100 rial pieces. 250 rial coins were introduced the following year. In 2004, the sizes of the 50, 100 and 250 rial coins were reduced and 500 rial coins were introduced. New, smaller types of 250 and 500 rials were introduced in 2009, along with the new denomination of 1000 rials. In 2010, coins were issued with denominations of 2,000 and 5,000 rials.

Coins in Circulation



In 1932, notes were issued by the "Bank Melli Iran" in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 rial. 1000 rial notes were introduced in 1935, followed by 200 rial notes in 1951 and 5000 and 10,000 rial in 1952. 5 rial notes were last issued in the 1940s, with 10 rial notes disappearing in the 1960s. In 1961, the Central Bank of Iran took over the issuance of paper money.

In 1979, after the Islamic revolution, Iranian banknotes featuring the Shah's face were counter-stamped with intricate designs to cover the Shah's face. The first regular issues of the Islamic Republic were in denominations of 100, 200, 500, 1000, 5000 and 10,000 rial. 2000 rial notes were introduced in 1986.

Emergency Information for Canadians in Iran

From the Government of Canada:

On September 7, 2012, Canada closed its embassy in Iran.

Because of heightened regional tensions, Canadian travellers in Iran will be closely watched by Iranian authorities. Iranian irritation at the Embassy closure may heighten this scrutiny of Canadians. Seemingly innocuous behaviours, such as the use of cameras in public places, travel beyond well-established tourist attractions, or casual interactions with Iranian friends, may be misinterpreted and may lead to investigation and harassment. Canadian travellers may be arbitrarily questioned, arrested and detained for a long period.

Canadians who choose to travel to Iran despite this warning should know that the Government of Canada’s ability to offer consular services in Iran is very limited and should expect delays if they request travel documents or a replacement for a lost or stolen passport. Ensure that your travel documents are up to date. Canadians in Iran seeking routine consular and passport services should contact the Embassy of Canada in Ankara, Turkey or any other Canadian mission. Canadians in Iran who require urgent assistance may contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre in Ottawa at 613-996-8885 (collect calls accepted), by email at"

Iranian Wedding Customs

Whether it is for spiritual, custom, or compassionate purposes, the practice of gift giving is adored in the Iranian culture and is a big part of the wedding celebrations. Additionally, elaborate planning and preparation take place, for weddings reigns on top of the Iranian hierarchy of celebrations.


The Wedding Engagement

Although arranged marriages are still known to be practised, it is becoming increasingly common for both the bride and groom to select one another.  The groom and his family visit the bride at her home to present her with sweets, flowers, and to ask for her hand in marriage.  Following her affirmative response, a negotiation commences between families to discuss the mahr and details of the marriage contract.  During this time the family shares tea, a traditional meal (sekanjebin), and smoke water pipes. Once the negotiations end they eat treats amongst one another; it’s a custom called eating sweets, also known as sheerne khoran.  Then men dressed up in festive costume carry containers of more gifts on their heads referred to as khonchech. The actual containers are called tabagh.  The engagement bands are then exchanged which are significantly simpler than the wedding ring the bride receives on the wedding day.  The engagement ring is accompanied by a shawl that is placed in a relatively expensive bag, boghcheh, with nabat, sugar cones, and sweets for the bride. The pre-wedding celebration evolves into a richly designed party.


Preparation Traditions

Presents including cardamom seeds, espand, rosewater, henna, dress fabrics, prayer mats, etc are given to the bride in excess during the wedding preparation time.  A couple days before the wedding a common custom of the brides would be to beautify herself by removing body hair.  A technique called band andazi is used that is also known as threading.  A day before the wedding is known as bathing day where separately the bride and groom will take part in the ceremonial washing and scrubbing (kisseh keshi) of their bodies and then adorn themselves in oils and perfumes. Additionally, a very important part of the pre-wedding activities is dowry preparation by the bride and her family which includes household items.


The Wedding Ceremony (Aghed)

Aghed is the wedding day ceremony that takes place in a floral decorated room with an elaborately designed spread on the floor i.e. “Sofreh Aghed.”  It is customary for this staging to be set up in the direction of sunrise and for the ceremony to take place during the day.  A mirror, candelabras, and a tray of seven multi-colored herbs and spices, “Sini-ye Aatel-O-Baatel,” further decorate the spread.  The groom is seated before the bride and always resides on her right hand side.  A delicate fabric, often silk, is held over the couples head as the ceremony proceeds. The preliminary blessings are given, verses are recited, and questions to the witnesses and others are asked at the start of the ceremony.  After receiving the approval from the parents, the priest then asks the bride and groom to confirm that they desire this marriage.  The bride is traditionally asked this question 3 times while her mother places gold coins in her hand each time.  This symbolically encourages the bride to say yes and illustrates that the groom is to be the one pursuing his bride.  Two different actions then take place simultaneously.  One is the rubbing of crystallized sugar in the shape of a cone together to symbolically sweeten the couple’s life together.  The second is the sewing of two pieces of the same fabric together to illustrate their union.  Upon the conclusion the mahr is approved and the marriage documents are signed which more modernly are done for symbolic reasons.  The couple then holds hands as they drink a sweet liquid or taste honey to grant them with a better sweeter life. Rings are exchanged and gifts such as barakat are given (shabash).


The Wedding Reception

An extensive feast partnered with music and dance illuminates the reception. Sheereen Polo is sweet rice that is always prepared along with snacks such as; nuts, raisins, pastries and, baked goods.  Iranian food is known for its herb seasoning and use of dried fruit.  The guests leave with party favors that incorporate traditional Iranian tokens or coins. They are called “sekkeh mobarak bad“, which literally translates to “congratulation coin”.

Post Wedding

As the bride and groom escape from the reception the guest follow with a procession of honking cars.  For a couple days following the wedding paghosah parties are held by family and friends in honor of the newlyweds.


Religion in Iran

Most Iranians are Muslims. Around 90% belong to Shi'a branch of Islam, the official state religion, and about 9% belong to the Sunni branch of Islam. The remaining 0.4% are non-Muslim religious minorities, including Bahá'ís, Mandeans, Hindus, Yarsanis, Zoroastrians, Jews, and Christians. The last three minority religions are officially recognized and protected, and have reserved seats in the Iran parliament. Zoroastrianism was once the majority religion, though today Zoroastrians number only in the tens of thousands. Iran is home to the biggest Jewish community in Muslim World. The Bahá'í Faith, Iran's largest non-Muslim religious minority, is not officially recognized, and has been persecuted during its existence in Iran. Although not officially recognized by the government, there exist Atheist and Agnostic Iranians.

Shi'a Islam

Today Islam is the religion of 99.6% of Iranians of which approximately 89% are Shi'a - almost all of whom are Twelvers. The next largest Shi'a group are the Nizari Ismailism Shi'a, sometimes called Seveners, some of whom fled Iran to South Asia, especially Mumbai, in the 1840s after a failed coup against the Shah of the Qajar dynasty. Many still remain scattered throughout Iran, The Shi'a groups have divisions between Fiver, Sevener and Twelver, derived from their belief in how many divinely ordained leaders there were who are descendants of the Islamic prophet Muhammad through his daughter Fatimah and his son-in-law ‘Alī. These Imams are considered the best source of knowledge about the Qur'an and Islam, the most trusted carriers and protectors of Muḥammad's Sunnah (habit or usual practice) and the most worthy of emulation. In addition to the lineage of Imams, Twelvers have their preferred hadith collections - The Four Books - which are narrations regarded by Muslims as important tools for understanding the Quran and in matters of jurisprudence. For Twelvers the lineage of Imams is known as the Twelve Imāms. Of these Imams, only one is buried in Iran - at the Imam Reza shrine, for Ali ar-Ridha who lived from 765 - 818 AD, before any Shi'a dynasties arose in Iran. The last Imam recognized by Twelvers, Muhammad al-Mahdi, was born in 868 AD as the Alavids spread their rule in Iran while in conflict with Al-Mu'tamid, the Abbasid Caliph at the time. Several Imams are buried in Iraq, as sites of pilgrimage, and the rest are in Saudi Arabia. In addition two of the Five Martyrs of Shia Islam have connections to Iran - Shahid Thani (1506–1558) lived in Iran later in life, and Qazi Nurullah Shustari (1549–1610) was born in Iran. The main school of theology, practice, and jurisprudence (Madh'hab) in Shi'a Islam is Jafari established by Ja'far as-Sadiq.

Sunni Islam

Sunni Muslims are the second largest religious group in Iran. Sunni Islam came precisely to rule in Iran after the period Sunni were distinguished from Shi'a through the Ghaznavids from 975 AD, followed by the Great Seljuq Empire and the Khwārazm-Shāh dynasty until the Mongol invasion of Iran. Islam returned to rule when Ghazan converted but he soon converted specifically to Shi'a.

About 9% of the Iranian population are Sunni Muslims - mostly Kurds in the northwest, Arabs and Balochs in the southwest and southeast, and a smaller number of Persians, Pashtuns and Turkmens in the northeast.

The predominant school of theology and jurisprudence (Madh'hab) among Sunnis in Iran is Hanafi, established by Abu Hanifa an-Nu‘man.


Sufi Islam

The Safaviya sufi order, originates during the circa Safavid dynasty circa 700AD. A later order in Persia is the Chishti. The Nimatullahi are the largest Shi'i Sufi order active throughout Iran and there is the Naqshbandi, a Sunni order active mostly in the Kurdish regions of Iran. The Oveyssi-Shahmaghsoudi order is the biggest Iranian Sufi order which currently operates outside of Iran.

Famous Sufis include al-Farabi, al-Ghazali, Jalāl-ad-Dīn Rūmī and Hafiz. Rumi's two major works, Dīwān-e Šams and Maṭnawīye Ma'nawī, are considered by some to be the greatest works of Sufi mysticism and literature.

Since the 1979 Revolution, Sufi practices have been repressed by the Islamic Republic, forcing some Sufi leaders into exile.

While no official statistics are available for Sufi groups, there are reports that estimate their population between two and five million.

Other faiths

There are numerous major religious minorities in Iran, Bahá'ís (est. 300,000-350,000) and Christians (est. 300,000, with one group composing over 200,000) being the largest. Minor groups include Jews, Zoroastrians, Mandaeans, Yarsan (Ahl-e Haqq), as well as local religions practised by tribal minorities.

Zoroastrians, Jews, and Christians are officially recognized and protected by the government. For example, shortly after his return from exile in 1979, at a time of great unrest, the revolution's leader, Ayatollah  issued a fatwa ordering that Jews and other minorities be treated well.
