When opening a company in Iran, as a foreign entrepreneur, you must choose the proper type (from the ones available within the country), offer it a name and, of course, open a corporate bank account. Our experts in company formation in Iran are here to assist with making the correct choices and set up the company in Iran, from the beginning until our clients receive the incorporation certificate.
Necessary documents for opening a bank account in Iran
Most often or as a general rule, the bank will ask for a certified copy of the director’s (or shareholder’s) passport and recent proof of residency within the last three months. If the client goes (in person) to the bank in order to open an account, he or she will not be required to offer the passport certified copy. So, in order to go forward with the company incorporation in Iran, we’ll send the requested files to you and we will help with everything else you might need.

After the completion of these steps, we will send the full package to the bank, in order to give the final approval.
