Enjoy living and working in Chennai

Are you an expat living in Chennai? You will surely come across many questions, such as ʺWhat documents does the Indian aliens department require for a work permit?”, ʺDo I have to pay taxes or licence fees for owning a TV?ʺ, or ”What can other expats recommend for cultural institutes in town?”

Looking for all of the information that is important for living and working in Chennai can take you hours. However, by using our Chennai expat guide you can greatly simplify your relocation to Chennai. Beginning with local organisations and companies to tips about health-care - the guide deals with all the different facets of the expat life in Chennai.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Chennai, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from moving to Bali to living in Lima.
