Make the most of living and working in Johannesburg

Expat living in Johannesburg raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from South African authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺWhich natural hazards may affect my stay in South Africa?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend serviced apartments in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Johannesburg takes a lot of time. Our Johannesburg expat guide is there to make your relocation to Johannesburg as easy as possible. Starting with housing and household to information about local infrastructure, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Johannesburg.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Johannesburg. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from live in Milan to living in Mexico City.
