The Expat France Chapter welcomes you!

Bonjour and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in France! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in France. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates France: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in France?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in Lyon?ʺ or ʺWhere in Paris can I meet fellow expats and compatriots from my home country?” Just to name a few examples…

InterNations aim is to help you, as an expatriate, in becoming part of the France expat community and exploring the French way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional foie gras to celebrating Bastille Day.

Next to France we host several more communities in Western Europe, e.g., our network of Portugal Expats. Or you might be interested in our Expats Germany community which is also fairly active.

Enjoy the France Expats Living

With attractions ranging from Brittany's rocky Atlantic coastline to the Mediterranean climate and scenery of La Provence, France fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The sizable expat France community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Paris and its political as well as economic opportunities, e.g. in the automobile industry. Whether you move to and live in France for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
