Alireza Ghahri on Oct 04, 2022:
Hi team
please be aware that the formal rate for IRR to USD is 1USD=42000IRR
but it is not available anywhere and the informal rate is about 1USD=330000IRR
please use this rate for costs of living in Iran.

I'm leaving in Karaj and going to Tehran often, so I can update all cost for Karaj and Tehran.

Thanks.
