Make the most of living and working in Chicago

Expat living in Chicago raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from American authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺCan you help me find a language partner to improve my business English and knowledge of American corporate culture?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend international schools in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Chicago takes a lot of time. Our Chicago expat guide is there to make your relocation to Chicago as easy as possible. Starting with culture and sights to information about education & children, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Chicago.

We certainly provide other expat communities than our members in Chicago with useful information on everyday life. Our guide features a range of topics, from living in Tokyo to living in Zurich.
