The Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, Egypt has been the home of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world — the Lighthouse of Alexandria — as well as the Great Library of Alexandria, famous not only for its size and significance at the time, but also for its sad end. Expats can look forward to exploring the city's ancient and imperial history through its many museums and cultural remains. There are a number of expats located in Alexandria and many work for multinational companies or teach English in the city. While many expats find that English language skills as well as professional skills have befitted them when it comes to finding work, they also find that speaking Arabic is often important to potential employers.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere 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 Malta or Athens, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
When using InterNations, you can feel safe and confident in interacting freely with other expats and global minds. All of the members of InterNations have gone through an approval process first to ensure our network remains the safe and secure place it is, where honesty, respect, and friendliness are valued principles. You can connect with other like-minded expats when you arrive in Alexandria by joining not only InterNations, but also one of our interest-based groups in the city, such as the Alexandria Pool Group. In case your hobbies or interests are not yet covered, we encourage you to simply create your own group to get together with like-minded people not only online, but offline as well! Meeting up with other expats in a new country is, after all, a great introduction to the place and will definitely help you to settle in.
