    1979

    Prior to 1944, Iran was not served by a United States ambassador; instead, a diplomatic minister was sent instead. In 1944, the first ambassador was then named.

    After the Iran Hostage Crisis in 1979, the United States terminated diplomatic relations with the regime, therefore no ambassadors have since been appointed. The United States government has since then been represented in Iran by the United States Interests Section of the Embassy of Switzerland in Tehran.
