The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Croatia

Are you an expat working and living in Croatia? Or are you preparing to move soon to Zagreb, Rijeka or any other of the Croatian international hotspots?

Expat life in Croatia has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the plains, lakes and rolling hills of the continental north, learning how Croatian people celebrate Tijelovo, up to tasting Croatia’s favorite dishes such as paški sir.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Croatia. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in France to living in Oman.

Working and living in Croatia – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Croatia requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Croatian expat life. Living abroad in Croatia raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Croatia?ʺ, ʺCan you find a local full-time job if you are not a native speaker?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Zagreb should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Croatian municipality in Dubrovnik?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Croatia is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Croatia aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Croatia. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from administration and finance, to culture & sights or education and children, up to local organisations & companies. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺIs it difficult to deal with Croatian government bureaucracy?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
