Canary Islands Expat Events

Make the most of your Canary Islands Expat Life

The "Islands Of The Dogs" offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like Parque Santa Catalina, Gran Canaria's hottest nightlife spot,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Spain’s Día de la Hispanidad, up to getting a taste of traditional paella. The InterNations community helps you as an Canary Islands expat to enjoy your expat stay in Spain to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Canary Islands and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺIn which cases do I need a so-called "Residencia" to stay for longer than half a year?ʺ up to ʺWill I be able to make a living as an EFL teacher in a Spanish metropolis?ʺ.
