Expat interest in politics in Iran

Hello everyone,

As an expat, your day-to-day life in Iran is impacted by decision-making at the political level in your host country as well as in your country of origin. We would like to know how involved you think expats should be in the political day-to-day of either their host or home country?

Can expats vote during elections which take place in their country of origin? Can you do so online or through embassies/consulates in Iran?

What is the administrative process which has been set up in Iran to enable expats to vote in their country of origin?

To which extent should political life in Iran include expats and their concerns? Should they be more active as a community to make their voices heard?

Are there any precautionary measures to observe during election period in your host country? Any local prohibitions?

Do you keep up with politics in Iran?

Thanks for sharing your experience.


Right now, especially for US expats in Iran, would be a very good time to get out and, if you don't, avoid politics like the plague.

The virtual US embassy has a stern warning as their latest murder, and the US presidedent's tweeted threats of attacks against cultural sites, have increased tensions dramatically.,
