A friend of mine in China is looking for a place to buy Iraian Rial (IRR).

I know that in the west Iran is financially blockaded so presume that this is one of the currencies that is not dealt with by money changing establishments.

But I wouldn't be surprised if China doesn't take part in the financial blockade. So do we know if it's possible to change CNY to IRR in China?

    I know that Persian restaurants offer money exchange. – Nean Der Thal Oct 13 '15 at 6:11

Both should exchange IRR.

  • It would have been great if you could also give us some links in case they might change either their address or numbers in future. – azerafati Nov 2 '15 at 8:01
