Welcome to Our Expat Community in Armenia!

Bari galu'st, and welcome to Armenia! The InterNations network is here to help you to get the best out of your new life in this majestic Eurasian nation. Many expats living and working in Armenia have used our platform to make connections (both online and face-to-face), trade advice and recommendations and find the answers to a host of important questions, such as the best districts to find property in Yerevan, the availability of healthcare and international schools, and what to expect from Armenian business customs. You should also feel free to share your own experiences of Armenian life by participating in our forums or writing an article for our Expat Magazine. A vibrant and lively country with beautiful natural landscapes and a rich tradition of hospitality, Armenia has plenty to offer for expats seeking to reconnect with their ethnic roots, take advantage of an open and relatively straightforward business culture or simply explore new adventures in a historic and rapidly developing country.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like India or Costa Rica.

How Is Life as an Expat in Armenia?

With cultural links that stretch all over the world, Armenia is a small country with a big personality. Since achieving independence from the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Armenia has taken advantage of its unique position at the crossroads of Europe and Western Asia to become a thriving hub for business and tourism. Despite economic struggles, the country has seen major development and regeneration in recent decades, particularly in the capital of <a href="/yerevan-expats">Yerevan</a> where glittering hotels and imposing tower blocks sit side-by-side with ancient monasteries and traditional churches. Outside the cities you'll find charming rustic villages, glistening lakes and breathtaking mountain ranges. A relatively easy nation in which to invest and do business, Armenia's major industries include mining and metallurgy, food production and manufacturing, plus a growing tourist industry and increased opportunities to invest in property development and telecommunications. There are some challenges to life in Armenia — not least the frosty relations and closed borders between neighboring Azerbaijan and Turkey — but on the whole this is a welcoming and entrepreneurial country whose people have great respect for the past, but are looking firmly towards the future.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world.
