Local Immigrant Population*


*Immigrant Population is an estimated sum of the number of naturalized Americans from this country and citizens from this country living in the Seattle Metro Area under any sort of immigration visa.  It does not count the American offspring or descendants of immigrants from this country, which can go back many generations and account for large numbers of people.  1,000 is the default number when we don’t have a better count.


Persian is the most common mother tongue in Iran. French and English are common second languages.


Looking for dates and figs as delicious as in Iran?  You can find them in Seattle!  A google search of Iranian specialty shops will reveal where locals with traditional tastes keep connected to the cuisine.

Iranian immigrants and descendants of Iranians who came to the Pacific NW over the past 50 years have found a familiar home in Seattle with the snow capped mountains and arid desert of Eastern Washington nearby.

If you are from Seattle, then it’s likely you know someone from the local Persian community.  Ask them about it next time you meet; you may be surprised by their story.  For authentic Persian cuisine, head to Caspian Restaurant in Bellevue.

Good person to contact about this international community in Seattle

Why does Seattle need this directory?


Covid has ruined the travel plans of so many people.  Maybe you are one of them.  Family trips, honeymoons, first time overseas trips postponed and cancelled.  Please explore this directory to create your own Round-the-World experience without traveling far from Seattle.  


Believe it or not, in 2022, New York City passed a law granting non-US citizens the right to vote in certain local and municipal elections.  Will Seattle follow NYC?  Time will tell.  If that comes to be, then this directory should be indispensable.  Let us know what you think.
