    I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming.

Start Your Expat Life in Aberdeen

Aberdeen has become a huge center for expatriates in recent years due to the explosion of the oil industry, and the rapid growth in other businesses to support it. The old granite town has taken on a new lease of life, with workers from all over the world building their communities in the area and taking advantage of a city of opportunity, which has become the richest city in Scotland and boasts an even higher concentration of millionaires than London.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Abu Dhabi or Dubai, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
