Smoking Ban in all Public Places in Iran

Iran has implemented a strict smoking ban in all public places since December 2007. According to
the new law, smoking is prohibited in all public organizations, hotels, restaurants, tea houses and
coffee shops. The offering and smoking of the traditional Persian water-pipe which is a must in
Iranian tea houses, was also banned.A smoking ban for all car drivers nationwide has been enforced.

The act to sell tobacco products to anyone under 18 would result in confiscation of the vendor's
tobacco products and a cash fine up to 65 dollars. Repeated violations would lead to cash fines
amounting to 1,400 dollars. Police has been ordered to decisively confront all restaurant owners
nationwide with a warning first, then temporary closing and, in case of repetition permanent closing
of their enterprise.

There are no official statistics on the number of smokers in Iran, but it is said that 60,000 Iranians
die directly or indirectly due to smoking every year.
