The Expatriate Community for Expats Worldwide

Our Mission: Make Life Easier for Expats!

InterNations is the first international community for all people living and working abroad. Founded in 2007 by three young entrepreneurs from Germany (former expatriates themselves), it has become the biggest expatriate network worldwide.

Our website now unites more than 1 million expats and global minds in all countries around the world. As a network based on trust, we help our members to find other expatriates in a similar situation, with comparable interests and needs.

InterNations helps expats to feel at home abroad, meet people and find information about their new environment: “Make life easier for expats!”

InterNations members keep in touch with old friends and business contacts – or make new ones. In addition to networking online, our members meet up at local get-togethers around the globe, specifically geared towards the foreign community in town.

InterNations aims to make life easier for expats. In our Forum or our Discussion Groups, you can exchange expat-specific tips and advice.

Our Country and City Guides, as well as our Expat Magazine, provide a helpful resource for all things related to moving and living abroad: for example, information on jobs, tax issues, medical services, education, expatriation, and relocation.

Last but not least, we believe that we can truly make a difference together. Change starts with each and every one of us. Expatriates often tend to be highly qualified and comparatively well-off; other people are unfortunately not as lucky. Therefore, we have thought of a way to give back to our communities.

The InterNations Volunteer Program is a worldwide initiative that involves several thousand members, who donate not "just" financial gifts, but also their time and talents to people in need. This is your chance to participate in monthly volunteering activities.

Enjoy expat life in all countries of the world!

InterNations is present in every country around the globe. We offer one worldwide membership for expats everywhere.

Our Members: The Expat Community Worldwide

InterNations reaches out to the international community: diplomats, IGO and NGO staff, foreign correspondents, expatriate employees of multinational companies, and their families.

We also welcome "global citizens" who simply enjoy exploring another culture and living overseas, as well as those with strong ties to expat circles (e.g. journalists or "repatriates"). Internationality and diversity are among our strongest qualities.

Global Network

InterNations is not only a global network. We are present locally in over 190 countries and nearly 390 cities worldwide.

It is the perfect platform to discuss life and culture in your new home away from home and to get info on your current city of residence – from shopping for food over language learning to purchasing property.

But no matter where we are: we always make sure that InterNations members can communicate, interact, and socialize in a safe and professional environment. We have high quality standards for membership and "netiquette".

We want everybody to feel welcome: after all, "nobody stands alone" is a motto central to the InterNations spirit.

We also take the concerns of our members seriously. Therefore, our site is pro-actively moderated to prevent abuse. Privacy, data protection, and security are top priorities for us. Your personal information will be in good hands.
