Pakistan Expat Guide
Prepare for Your Life as an Expat in Pakistan
Pakistan is on the brink of being tourism's “next big thing” — its spectacular Karakoram Mountains, ancient bazaars of Quetta, architectural masterpieces of Lahore, and the cosmopolitan hub of Karachi are all unique and exciting travel destinations. Pakistan also attracts many mountaineers from all over the world, as well as culture vultures interested in its ancient ruins and stunning architecture. So there’ll be plenty to see and do for expats in Pakistan, even if expat life is obviously about more than just visiting the tourist sites.
Textiles and agriculture are two of Pakistan's key industries and export economies. Pakistan faces some challenges in improving its infrastructure, education and healthcare for its growing urban population in the future, but it is more than possible to travel the country by train, sample the tasty local food, and feel like you are experiencing one of the world's lost travel secrets.
Expats in Pakistan are a mix of people posted to the country and those that have chosen to move there. Lots of expats teach English or work with NGOs and local communities. Regardless of the reason for your relocation, Pakistani people are famously welcoming and friendly by nature, so you have much to look forward to.
