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 have a bunch left over, if there's some way to get it to you...

Bank Melli Iran has a branch in Hong Kong (surprisingly none in the mainland):

257, Des Voeux Road Central,

Hong Kong

Tel : +852 37614444

Fax : +852 28684692

Tejarat Bank also has a representation office in Beijing:

Office C208, Beijing Lufthansa Center.

No. 50, Liangmaqiao Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing (100125)

Tel : (86-10) 84551116

Fax : (86-10) 84551117

E-mail : [email protected]

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.
