Get to Know Our Expat Community in Edinburgh!

Aw'rite and welcome to our Edinburgh expat community! InterNations is here to help you when moving to a foreign land. Once you join our community, you will find answers to your queries about moving abroad, such as, "what is the healthcare provision like in Scotland?", "how does the tax system work?ʺ, and ʺwhat is the best way to get from A to B by public transportation?ʺ. There are answers to these and many other questions from our members. We aim to support you not only in connecting to other global minds such as yourself, but also in developing a full understanding of the way of life in Scotland's capital. A city with a fascinating history and rich culture, Edinburgh will introduce the open-minded expat to everything from haggis to ceilidh dancing.

Read Up on Expat Life in Edinburgh

Beautiful Edinburgh captures the imagination from the moment you arrive. Its handsome and hilly streets have many stories to tell and it boasts a remarkable number of green spaces. Expats come for the ease of living in this friendly, compact city, but many who currently reside in Edinburgh have chosen to do so on the basis of the good number of job opportunities on offer. Living the expat life in Edinburgh offers a high quality of life in very picturesque surroundings, plus plenty of cultural offerings, from music gigs to groundbreaking theater.
