Working and volunteering


There are very few opportunities for volunteering in Iran, and opportunities through international volunteering organisations are virtually non-existent. Some local community organisations may be happy for you to help out for a day or two, but you'll need to arrange this on the ground and opportunities are very few.


Finding work in Iran is next to impossible. Quite apart from the problems you'd encounter with the authorities if you sought to work while in the country as a tourist, opportunities are extremely rare.
