Johannesburg Expat Events

Make the most of your Johannesburg Expat Life

"Jo'Burg", "Jozi" or "Gauteng" offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the Apartheid Museum, a very moving and informative trip through South Africa's turbulent past,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of South Africa’s the Day of Reconciliation, up to getting a taste of traditional bobotie. The InterNations community helps you as an Johannesburg 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 Johannesburg 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.
