Manila Expat Events

Enjoy your Manila Expat Experience

The "Pearl Of The Orient" opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as Quiapo Church, which houses the revered statue of the Black Nazarene,, the traditional celebration of Philippines’s Kaarawan ni Bonifacio, to savoring a dish of halo-halo. The InterNations network is a place made for the Manila expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in the Philippines. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Manila, from ʺI need some counsel on the Philippines' labour law. Can you maybe help me out?ʺ to ʺMy partner and I would like to get married in the Philippines. What sort of official documentation do we need?ʺ
