How not to be culturally shocked in Iran: awkwardness in Iran
4 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.00

Handshakes

In Islam, physical contact between unrelated males and females is not allowed. Hence, the handshake etiquette between two parties of the same sex is similar to other cultures. However, when it comes to shaking hand between a man and woman, the etiquette is to wait for the lady to extend her hand. Follow this rule or you will see yourself with an extended arm that no-one wants to shake. It is very awkward.

Personal Space

Nothing to worry about on this subject, but only be advised that this space is a few inches shorter in Iran. Don't be surprised if you see people looking over each other's shoulders while waiting at an ATM machine. Or they stand closer than usual to you while asking for direction.
