A Unique Expat Experience in Iran

Iran is a country of almost unparalleled history and culture. With a hugely diverse landscape, spanning arid deserts, lush forests, and huge mountain ranges, Iran is breathtakingly beautiful, and is also dotted with stunning architecture from a variety of historical periods. Thanks to the urban nature of Iranian culture, expatriates may find the country to be surprisingly liberal, but it can still be a challenging place to settle down in. That's where InterNations can help, offering you an easy way to connect with other international people living in Iran both online and offline. The expatriates who currently live in Iran mostly work in the oil and gas industries, which dominate the economy of the republic.
