Security concerns when shipping to Iran
There are quite a few sanctions pertaining to shipping from the United States to Iran. Most of these have to do with what is being shipped specifically, but it is best to double check with the state department or Iranian Customs before shipping there to make sure what you are trying to send is even allowed to be sent. In addition to these sanctions (which, by the way, are in place for many other countries beside the United States mentioned in the example), there are security concerns when shipping there because there is a lot of theft and seizure by the government that goes on there. To minimize this with your shipments to Iran, be sure to check their current list of prohibited and restricted items, don't ship anything that can not be replaced if lost or stolen, and try to adhere by their Customs guidelines as strictly as possible.
Tracking your shipping to Iran
