Time in Tehran: remember we’re 30 minutes out!
I often get asked what the time in Tehran is, and I have to explain that Iran, along with India is one of the few countries with a clock which is thirty minutes off the hour.
Tehran to Europe
For example, if you’re basing your time on GMT, or whatever the new official name of London’s base time is, we’re 3:30 hours ahead mostly not taking into account the clocks going back and forward an hour.
Also, if you’re using CET as your base, Tehran is usually 2:30 hours ahead, while we’re are mostly 30 minutes ahead of time zones like Dubai, UAE, which runs off Arabian time.
Meanwhile, the current time difference between Tehran and Moscow is just 1 hour and 30 minutes, with the Russian capital running behind its Iranian counterpart.
