Post Bank of Iran (Persian: پست بانک ایران‎) is an Iranian bank.


Post Bank of Iran was formally established in 2006. It is the eleventh state owned bank in Iran.[2]

International issues[edit]

On 6 September 2013, the European General Court in Luxembourg ruled to annul the European Union (EU) sanctions in place since 2010 against the bank on grounds of supporting the Iranian nuclear and missile programs, as EU governments had not proved the accusations against the bank.[3][4] As of 2016, the EU asset freeze was still in effect.[5]
