Iran currently has two exchange rates, one formally fixed by the Central Bank of Iran and another informal, open market rate that's sold to the public via currency exchange shops and traders on street corners (Street Rate). When there is a wide descripancy between the Official and the actual Street exchange rate, both rates are listed. In 2012 this gap increased to 3X. For example on April 2013, the official Iran Central Bank Exchange Rate for Dollar was 12,284 Rial - but no private business or individual could get such exchange rate. The actual dollar exchange rate was 36,500 Rial rather than the official 12,284 Rial. In July 2013, after Rial falling to its all time low of around 40,000 to 1 US dollar - the Central Bnk of Iran upgraded its official exchange rate from 12,284 to a more reasonable 20,750 and in August to 24,500 but still well below the actual street exchange rate.

Key Features of the Iran Exchange System

The currency of Iran is the Iranian Rial (IRR). From early 80s to 2001, Iran had a multi-exchange-rate system; one of these rates, the official floating exchange rate, by which most essential goods were imported, averaged 1,750 rials per US dollar; in March 2002, the multi-exchange-rate system was converged into one rate at about 7,900 rials per US dollar.

The English-language Tehran Times on Monday February 1, 1999 urged the government to scrap the different rates in favour of a unified exchange rate. "A single rate will help wipe out the black market and cure the nation's ailing economy as well."

The Unofficial - Street Exchange Rate used among small businesses and private transactions was much higher than official multi-exchange-rate prior to 2002. Since going to a single exchange rate the official and "Street-rate" have come much closer. The rates listed below are based on the official exchange rate posted by the Iran Central Bank. We compare the official and "Street-rates" to ensure rates listed below are the most accurate indicative of the true IRR-USD exchange rate. US Dollar (USD) is the most widely used foreign currency and the new $100 bills are preferred for street transactions and get the best rate.

Exchange control authority is vested in Bank Markazi Jomhouri Islami Iran (Central bank of Islamic Republic of Iran). All foreign exchange transactions must take place through the banking system.

Note 1:From 1997 to 2001, Iran had a multi-exchange-rate system; one of these rates, the official floating exchange rate, by which most essential goods were imported, averaged 1,750 rials per US dollar; in March 2002, the multi-exchange-rate system was converged into one rate at about 7,900 rials per US dollar

Note 2:Another account of Iranian Government official exchange rates - Iranian rials (IR) per US$1-1,754.63 (January 1999), 1,751.86 (1998), 1,752.92 (1997), 1,750.76 (1996), 1,747.93 (1995), 1,748.75 (1994); black market rate: 7,000 rials per US$1 (December 1998); note-as of May 1995, the "official rate" of 1,750 rials per US$1 is used for imports of essential goods and services and for oil exports, whereas the "official export rate" of 3,000 rials per US$1 is used for non-oil exports and imports not covered by the official rate.
