Make the most of living and working in Cape Town

Expat living in Cape Town raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from South African authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺWhich natural hazards may affect my stay in South Africa?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend serviced apartments in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Cape Town takes a lot of time. Our Cape Town expat guide is there to make your relocation to Cape Town as easy as possible. Starting with housing and household to information about local infrastructure, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Cape Town.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Cape Town. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from moving to London to living in Munich.
