Meeting and Greeting Etiquette
• When meeting someone in a business or
official context always shake hands.
• As a male you should Consider women
normally do not shake hand with men, so
simply nod your head and smile.
• Placing your hand on your heart is a nice touch.
Meeting and Greeting Etiquette
• The most common greeting in Iran is 'salam’
reply is the same.
• When departing, Iranians will generally usually
use, 'khoda-hafez' (may God preserve you).
• When doing business in Iran, stick to
formalities. Once a relationship has been
established your Iranian counterpart will quickly
start to address you with your first name.
Meeting and Greeting Etiquette
• Men are addressed with 'agha' proceeded by
the surname. So, Alan Jones will be 'Agha-ye
Jones'. With women you would use 'khanoom'.
So, Samantha Jones will be 'khanoom-e Jones'.
Professionals with titles will be addressed
similarly, for example, 'Doctor Jones'.
Dress and What to Wear
• Most Iranian officials and business people wear
clothing comprising of trousers, shirt and
jacket. Many officials will be seen with
collarless shirts. Ties are very uncommon.
• As a male you would be expected to be smart
and conservative. A suit is standard although
wearing a tie is not necessary.
• About Women!
Business meetings
• If you plan on doing business in Iran
appointments should be made in advance both
via telephone and in writing. Prior to arriving in
Iran telephone again just to confirm time and
place.
• Business hours are Saturday to Thursday 9 a.m.
- 5 p.m. Lunch is usually an hour at around 1
p.m. Friday is a holiday. No business will take
place so either try and avoid it or ensure you
can use it to see some of Iran.
Business meetings
• There are a few key times to avoid in Iran. No-
Rooz is the major holiday for Iranians. Although
its roots are in Zoroastrianism, this New Year
celebration is an integral part of Iranian culture.
All offices, businesses, shops, etc will close for
2-3 weeks.
• Other times to avoid doing business are
Ramazan (the month of fasting), Eid-e Fetr
(festival celebrating the end of Ramazan), Eid-e
Ghurban (celebrating the end of the pilgrimage)
and Ashura (the tenth day of Muharram).
Punctuality
• Punctuality in Iran is rare. However, it will be
expected of you. If you are doing business with
government officials in Iran be prepared to be
kept waiting.
• The administration and bureaucracy in Iran can
be chaotic, meaning that officials may need to
address an important issue before seeing you.
• Be patient and courteous. If you like tea, do not
be afraid to ask for lots of it!
Opening a meeting &
Interpreters
• Although many Iranians in business and in the
higher levels of government will have a good
understanding of English, it is best to arrange
for your own interpreter to accompany you.
• At the beginning of any meeting engage in
niceties and ask after people's health, families,
work, etc.
• Wait for your counterpart to initiate the
change in conversation to business matters.
Tips on
negotiating in Iran:
• Before doing business in
Iran appreciate this: Your
success is defined by your
aptitude to build effective
personal relationships
combined with a clearly
outlined and well
presented proposal.
Tips on
negotiating in Iran:
• Business is personal in
Iran.
• Many businesses are
family owned and run.
• Even within
government, officials
usually work within
networks of friends and
associates.
Negotiating in Iran:
• If you have influential
friends in Iran, do not be
afraid to call in favours.
• Just be prepared to re-
pay them in the future.
• This is all part of doing
business in Iran.
Building a relationship with your
Iranian counterpart(s) is critical.
The first meeting should be solely focused on getting to
know each other.
Once a relationship has been established you can safely
move on to business matters.
Iranians are astute business people. They enjoy haggling
and getting concessions so be prepared for long
negotiations.
Decision making can be slow
• It is most likely that you will meet and negotiate
with less senior members of a family or state
department first.
• Once you are seen as trustworthy you will then
move on to meet more senior members.
Decision making can be slow
• Implementing decisions are just as slow.
• Iran's red tape and layered bureaucracy means a
lot of waiting.
• Applying pressure in a non-confrontational
way can help speed matters up although
the most effective way to do so is to use
people of influence to help you.
