Our Expat Community in Spain Welcomes You!

¡Hola! and welcome to our expat community in Spain! Start life in your home-away-from-home with InterNations. InterNations is a global network for expats all around the world, with over 390 InterNations Communities across the globe set up to help fellow expatriates start their next chapter. InterNations' members can offer friendly advice with insider knowledge and experience of living in Spain. You can call on a reliable group of expats to answer your pressing questions about moving abroad with InterNations.

You may be wondering what life is like in Spain, with questions about areas such as, “what are the schools like in Madrid?”, “what's the property market like in Barcelona?”, and “which neighborhood do you recommend in Seville?”. To find the answers from real people that really live in Spain, you can join InterNations, ask current expats these questions, and they will be only too happy to answer and help you make your decision.

If you have already moved abroad and are keen to meet fellow expats or discover more about Spanish culture in your region, such as where the locals get the best paella or tapas, or when the next Spanish festival is, InterNations can enlighten you. This helpful platform provides an insight into Spanish living, and will help you to integrate and become an educated Spanish resident.

Next to Spain we host several more communities in Western Europe, e.g., our network of Malaysia Expat. Or you might be interested in our Peru Expat community which is also fairly active.

Spain Expat Events

Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Spain

Spain is made up of a large rural landscape of farms and perfect countryside for you to explore, as well as a number of bustling, lively, and prosperous cities you can experience and/or live in. A stone's throw away from the UK, Spain has all of the beauty of the Mediterranean as well as all the culture and history you can expect from any European country.

If you like sun, leisure, and friendly people, Spain is the place for you. Less than 1% of expats describe the Spanish weather as bad and 91% are happy with the number of activities available. Most expats choose Spain for the lifestyle rather than for the economy, which has suffered since the global economic crisis of 2009. However, housing is still largely affordable in Spain and the country is highly regarded as one of the nicest countries to raise a family in.

High numbers of expats have said they feel at home in Spain, with welcoming and friendly locals always happy to get to know foreign residents. Many expats living in Spain find it easy to adopt the Spanish culture and to pick up the language — an important part of settling into another country. Whether you choose to live in a seaside town such as Adra and become accustomed to the beach life or you live in Spain's iconic capital, Madrid — home to some of the world's most unique architecture — the InterNations Communities in Spain have helpful advice for you, with groups you can join and local events you can take part in straight away, on this new chapter of your life.
