Work Hours

BANKS: open 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday to Wednesday and 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. Thursday (close on Friday). BUS COMPANY OFFICES: at the terminals in larger cities open daily from early morning until the evening more or less without a bread. However, in smaller towns they keep shorter, less regular hours, and may or may not be open on Friday or public holidays; in some cases they are active just before a bus is due to leave, and perhaps and extra hour or two a day. FOREIGN EMBASSIES: consulates and business follow the Iranian working week, closing on Friday and often on one other day of the week, usually Saturday, as well as on their own national holidays. However, to make sure on all cases, it is sensible to call first before visiting. GOVERNMENT OFFICES: are generally open from 8 am to 2 p.m., Saturday to Wednesday. Some offices, especially Ministries in Tehran, are closed completely on Thursday and others open only from 8 to 11:30 am or noon. In general Thursday is not a good day for conducting official business. HAIRDRESSERS: Open 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. weekdays (closed on Fridays).
