Immigration is a process which does not end with the arrival of immigrants to the target. Focusing on immigrant narratives and extracting immigration and survival strategies are essential to completing immigration research. This paper focusing on the migration process of one of the Azerbaijani families resident in Tehran from an anthropological point of view and with a narrative analysis method to survival and promotion of life among some of the low-income immigrants in the city. Results show that immigration dynamism has been denied in its definition. This concept goes immigration beyond the staged migration (from village to small town, and from there to larger cities), returning migration (returning migrant to the village due to the sameness of urban and rural lives), and spatial or periodic migration (seasonal residence in city and village). Moreover, this study shows that attracting low-income urban migrants in the city takes about two to three decades. They quietly equip themselves with survival and prompting strategies. One of these strategies revolves around housing and a variety of low-income neighborhoods.
