IR

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for IRAN, ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF.

IR

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Islamic Republic of Iran. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Iranian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Iran. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Iran. Each province has its own code with the prefix "IR." For example, the code for the Province of Fars is ISO 3166-2:IR-14.
