Temporary closure of UNHCR services in Iran

UNHCR Iran would regrettably like to inform all refugees/ asylum seekers residing in Iran, that some of the services, including resettlement, cash-based interventions, and voluntary repatriation, would be kept on hold from 31 March until 16 April 2023. However, services such as psychosocial support and legal intervention will continue throughout this period.

The stoppage of all the cases assessment is because of the technical upgradation in the UNHCR data system.

UNHCR services are expected to resume back to normal from 17 April 2023, but with limited functionality, the normal resumption for the services will begin from 20 April 2023.

All UNHCR services will resume back to normal from 26 April onwards.

UNHCR will remain available to respond to any urgent cases through the following hotlines or through email, as stated below:
