Canada Closes Embassy in Iran

On September 7, 2012, Canada closed its embassy in Tehran, Iran.
Government of Canada
:Canadians in Iran seeking routine consular and passport services should contact the Embassy of Canada in Ankara, Turkey, or any other Canadian mission. Those who require urgent assistance should contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre in Ottawa, by calling collect at 613-996-8885 or by sending an email to [email protected].

Canada has updated its Travel Reports and Warnings to advise Canadians to avoid all travel to Iran. Canadians who have Iranian nationality are warned in particular that the Iranian regime does not recognize the principle of dual nationality. By doing so, Iran makes it virtually impossible for Government of Canada officials to provide consular assistance to Iranian-Canadians in difficulty.
Canada calls upon the families, friends, employers and co-workers of Canadians living, studying or travelling in Iran to provide them with this important information on the Emergency Watch and Response Centre and the consular services available to them.
Iranian nationals outside of Iran can submit their applications to any Canadian visa office. More information on visa services is available online at Citizenship and Immigration Canada
