Hamra aval services (First Iranian Mobile Operator) offers a great mobile network connection all over. By buying a prepaid SIM card, save your travel expenses!

Hamrahe Aval or First Operator is a state-owned mobile Telco company and known as the first mobile telecommunication company in Iran. Hamrahe Aval offers a great mobile network connection all over the country and provides 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE services on the GSM platform. The mobile signal may be weak in the Mountains and some desert lands of IRAN.

Hamrahe Aval SIM cards have SMS, MMS, and GPRS services.


Buying a local SIM card or using the roaming service?

If you are in a situation where it is impossible to connect to the Internet in your hotel, or if you would like to call and use the Internet all through your trip in Iran or other similar conditions, we suggest you buy a local SIM card to take advantage of better deals and plans instead of using your home mobile phone network.


Where Can I Buy a SIM Card?

Upon arriving at the Imam Khomeini Airport, a prepaid SIM Card can be purchased from official stores in Arrivals Lobby. Only two mobile data operators are available in the airport, Hamrahe Aval (MCI) and Irancell (MTN), which are the largest mobile operator in Iran. Otherwise, you can purchase a prepaid Sim Card from official stores and approved resellers all over the country.




What documents do you need to get a SIM card?

You must have your passport to purchase a SIM card. You will also receive a form to fill out with the exact information from your passport. With these documents, you cannot get a postpaid SIM card, from Hamrahe Aval, you can only purchase a prepaid SIM card.

Note: If you want to use a local SIM card for more than a month (since the first day of using the SIM Card), you need to register your mobile phone and pay the mobile phone tax.

All prepaid SIM cards that sell in Imam Khomeini Airport counters have already been activated. So, your Hamrahe Aval prepaid SIM card will be activated as soon as the registration process has been completed. To activate your mobile number, dial * 141* 1 # [YES / OK] before receiving the first call.
