Kish

Diving on Kish Island

When I go to Iran later this year I want to visit Kish Island for a few days for scuba diving. Last week I read in Bradt Travel Guide (from 2005) that diving was only for men. Is this true? Some years ago I met an Iranian woman in Damascus and she told me she and her sister had done a dive on Kish Island. Maybe the rules have changed since then. I have searched on Internet to find any information about this, but without success. Before I got this link from aliamiri
iranscubadiver.com/_wsn/page...
On this website there is a mail link I and I wrote a mail, but have not got an answer.
Does anyone know if women can dive on Kish Island?

Dear Malena,
as you've read in Bradt travel guide I think there isn't any place
for women in Kish island for diving, I've not heard anything about
it yet. But I'll contact with some organizations in Kish island and
ask them about it and I will inform you asap. I hope you have a good
stay here in Iran.
all the best,
Mohammad

Hello Malena

I have checked your page and found that you have visited Israel before. If you apply for Iranian visa with an Israelian stamp on your passport, it will be almost impossibel to get Iranian visa. Try to change your passport before applying for visa.

And about diving, you can go diving, but privately and you have to cover all your body.

I hope you enjoy your trip to Iran.

"Application requirements:

(a) Valid passport with a minimum of two blank pages to affix visa.

(b) Two application forms.

(c) Two passport-size photos (women should be photographed wearing the hejab – Islamic head dress)."

Kurosh, this is an old thread. I asked the question many years ago and can tell you that when I visited Iran in 2006 I did some diving on Kish. It was possible for women to dive on Kish ten years ago. Have that changed?
