The Expat Malaysia Chapter welcomes you!

Assallamaleicum and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in Malaysia! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in Malaysia. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates Malaysia: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in Malaysia?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in Kuantan?ʺ or ʺWhere in Kuala Lumpur 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 Malaysia expat community and exploring the Malaysian way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional nasi lemak to celebrating Vesak Festival.

Next to Malaysia we host several more communities in Asia & Oceania, e.g., our network of China Expats. Or you might be interested in our France Expats community which is also fairly active.

Enjoy the Malaysia Expats Living

With attractions ranging from tea plantations in the Cameron Highlands to the self-proclaimed world's oldest rainforest, Malaysia fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The sizable expat Malaysia community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Kuala Lumpur and its political as well as economic opportunities, e.g. in the green energy sector. Whether you move to and live in Malaysia for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
