The Foreign and Commonwealth Office provides foreign travel advice for 225 countries and territories to help British nationals living or travelling overseas to make informed decisions about their travel plans. We keep all our travel advice, including for Iran, under constant review to ensure it reflects our current assessment of the risks to British nationals. Our travel advice for Iran makes clear that, currently, British nationals face greater risks in Iran than nationals of many other countries. Any decision to travel to another country is for an individual to take on their own responsibility, after informing themselves of the risks they may face.
