As-salam 'alaykum and a warm welcome to the InterNations Amman Community. As a community designed to serve expats in Amman and elsewhere around the world, InterNations is here to make integrating into a new culture easier for you.

These could include, "how will we find a new home?" and "Is there a language barrier?".

With rolling hills, spectacular Roman ruins, and interesting Middle Eastern architecture, Amman offers plenty of beauty to its new expat arrivals. Many expats arriving in Amman do so because of work assignments. With winters that are cold and summers that become incredibly hot, Amman may pose some challenges for those coming from morebalanced climates. However, it is a city with reliable telecommunications and utility systems, as well as a delightful selection of restaurants. These include Beit Sitti, which serves traditional Arabic food, and Brisket, which offers tasty barbecue dishes. If you're moving to Amman with a young family, there are a number of schools for you to choose from. The Amman Academy, International Community School, and The International Academy all offer bilingual educations, with some using the International Baccalaureate system.
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 Riyadh or Amsterdam, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
The InterNations Community is here to serve the needs of like-minded expatriates in Amman. When engaging in our community, making conscientious contributions and participating with a little openness and respect will take you a long way. In exchange, our members will guide you through the process of moving to Amman. As they have experienced life as a fresh-faced expatriate themselves, they can offer an insight that is unique to the Amman expat community. Popular neighborhoods include Jabal Amman, Jabal al Webdeih, and Abdoun, all of which have thriving expat communities. Once you have settled in, why not come to one of our events, open to the whole community for socializing and networking? They act as a great opportunity to meet other expats, which means you'll make plenty of new friends. You can also join our groups, which include sushi evenings and get-togethers to enjoy Italian food. You can always open your own group if you don't see one for your favorite hobby or interest. As a member of InterNations, you'll soon start feeling at home in Amman.
