The InterNations community helps you as an Durban expat to enjoy your expat stay in South Africa to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Durban and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺWhich natural hazards may affect my stay in South Africa?ʺ up to ʺWhich types of insurance does an expat commonly need? Household insurance? Car insurance? Anything else?ʺ.
