Izmir Expat Events

Make the most of your Izmir Expat Life

the city formerly known as Smyrna offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the open-air museum with Smyrna's well-preserved agora, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Turkey’s Kurban Bayramı, the Sacrifice Feast, up to getting a taste of traditional köfte. The InterNations community helps you as an Izmir expat to enjoy your expat stay in Turkey to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Izmir and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺWhat are the hottest nightclubs in Istanbul at the moment?ʺ up to ʺHow difficult is it for an academic expat to have their residence permit renewed?ʺ.
