TEFL in Iran

Iran is opening up after many years of political difficulties (An observation, not a topic to discuss), and that's likely to mean opportunities for expat EFL teachers.
What's the EFL world like in Iran, are there many expat teachers over there, and are schools crying out for native English speaking teachers at this point?
What qualifications are required/requested/preferred, and are there any restrictions on foreign teachers in Iran?
