The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Greece

Are you an expat working and living in Greece? Or are you preparing to move soon to Athens, Larissa or any other of the Greek international hotspots?

Expat life in Greece has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the countless isles scattered throughout the Aegean and Ionian Seas, learning how Greek people celebrate Epetios tou Ohi, up to tasting Greece’s favorite dishes such as moussaka.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Greece, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from living in Egypt to living in Poland.

Working and living in Greece – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Greece requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Greek expat life. Living abroad in Greece raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Greece?ʺ, ʺDo I have to register with local authorities immediately after arrival?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Athens should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Greek municipality in Thessaloniki?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Greece is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Greece aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Greece. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from health-care, to restaurants & nightlife or travel and accommodation, up to education & children. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhat do's and don'ts are appropriate when visiting an Orthodox church?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Greece. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on living in Australia or living in Thailand.
