Technology has matured enough in Iran as we see this maturity in other countries in the Middle East through which a bunch of job opportunities are available for both local and foreign IT engineers all industries from manufacturing, consumer electronics, medicine, construction, to other sectors.
How much can you earn as an IT Engineer?
For instance, pay for a senior software or web developer in Tehran might be as high as 100,000,000 IRR per month (nearly 3K USD). It is quite good for Iran standards, but nothing compared to how much you would earn working in the US or UK doing the same work. The good thing about software or web development, however, is that it’s usually possible to work 100% remotely. For example, if you are currently working for an American company, you could see if they would be willing to let you move to Iran and continue your same job from here.
Since, work permits are only given for employees of Iranian companies, Farazandishan can help you relocating to Iran by employing you here and invoicing your monthly salary to your local bank account.
A similar option is available for those who work as freelance software developers and programmers. Rather than working under the radar on a tourist visa—with all the stress and uncertainty—you can work legally in Iran by joining Farazandishan. This is a great option for those who enjoy the autonomy of freelance style work, but would also like the stability of having a work permit, year-long visa, subsidized government healthcare, and a tax home so you can avoid paying the high income tax from your home country. A relevant degree and 2-years’ experience or at least 5 years’ experience in your field are the main minimum requirements in order to get a work permit using this program.
