Default Move to Iran?

Joined this forum today as just back from 2nd trip to Iran and seriously considering going to live there. Not a lot of websites about emigrating into Iran - funny that - so thought I might meet people here. Thanks, Pecos - UK

Funny that, I was just pondering a move to North Korea. I hear it's delightful at this time of year.

Can you please tell us about your findings in Iran, specially what has attracted you most about the country? Which city would you be moving to?

Default Re: Move to Iran?

I backpacked thru Iran on my way to India and liked the place very much - beautiful places, nice people.
This year I went for three weeks just for the people.
Iranis/Persians are the most charming, friendly, hospitable, surprising, intelligent, educated, funny, cultured, and lively nation I have ever encountered.
I met other travellers who enjoyed being in Iran and were impressed by the warmth of their reception - but are not coming back. Others - like me - just fell in love with the place.
I suddenly realised that this is where I want to be.
This is why I joined this forum - in the hope of meeting someone who has gone to live permanently/longterm in Iran and the difficulties of so doing. Can't see it neing easy but you never know. It is my first step at research.

One of the mods is married to an Iranian; I'll page her over here. I haven't seen anyone discussing immigration to Iran on the boards before.

True.
I turned up some interesting stuff with google though. It may be impossible to get a permanent settlement visa. It might be one of those border-run type things, which can make it hard to settle.
I always think a long stay visit is a good idea before making a permanent move anywhere.

Hmmm. A challenge then. I have a friend who wants me to stay at least for the winters who intimated he could arrange the visa. Soooo interesting!

We had loads of Persians in N Vancouver when i lived there. Really nice people. Great celebrations on our main street when they beat the Americans in the world cup. Ooh we laughed.

Pecos... just hire a sail boat from these blokes and you'll get a permanent visa with a small house with free food.

Wink Re: Move to Iran?

Well, it's not the first time for me to hear the word "Iran" followed by NKorea...but hang on a sec there is no internet connection in the DPRK while 25 million active users in Iran (32% of popu.) are usually known as one of the the greatest communities on many social networking websites...N Korea (sadly) is a starved land in these days while Iran is one of the richest counties in the world...and finally can not think of any N Korean "history makers" whereas many "daily" things are around today thanks to Iranian (or Iranian descent) founders e.g. Ebay, medical Alcohol or "the first declaration of human rights 2500 years ago)...am not quite sure who decided for the first time to put these two countries together but really dont see much similarity boys.
