Edinburgh Expat Events

Make the most of your Edinburgh Expat Life

The "Athens Of The North" offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the magnificently situated royal fortress of Edinburgh Castle, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of UK’s various bank holidays, up to getting a taste of traditional roast beef. The InterNations community helps you as an Edinburgh expat to enjoy your expat stay in the UK to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Edinburgh and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺWhich diseases do I need to have my pet checked for before bringing it along to the UK?ʺ up to ʺAm I automatically entitled to NHS insurance and medical care?ʺ.
