"I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming."

Welcome to Our Network of Expatriates in the UK!

Hello, and welcome to our UK expatriate community! InterNations is a platform offering a range of services to help expatriates, including you, navigate the issues they encounter when moving to a new country. At the heart of this is a secure and supportive community, which you are invited to contribute to. Once you've joined InterNations, we'll be able to address your questions and concerns in our community. There's a lot to think about, from, "what visa do I need to work in the UK?", to "are there any travel restrictions between England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland?" and "how does healthcare work here?".

Next to the UK we host several more communities in Western Europe, e.g., our network of Expatriates Egypt. Or you might be interested in our Expat Panama community which is also fairly active.

Embark on Your Life as an Expat in the UK

From the buzzing sprawl of London to the rolling Yorkshire dales, the UK has something to offer everyone. You don't need a piece of the countryside to be able to enjoy it, however; freedom of access means that the most beautiful parts of the country are ring-fenced from builders and open for the public to explore. Here, the best of both worlds is a real possibility. But we're sure you're not just here for the views. The UK has a variety of industries and an economy that is relatively lush in comparison to many other corners of the world. Whatever your skills, employment often comes with training here, so you'll soon feel equipped to contribute to the UK's continued economic recovery.

The Network for Like-Minded Expatriates in the UK

InterNations offers a network where you can connect with expat and global minds in a secure environment, both online and offline. Each member goes through a careful approval process, to uphold the high quality of our community. Respect of our principles is key, with trust, politeness, and a welcoming and open-minded attitude the order of the day. This means that you will be able to interact in a friendly and trustworthy environment. All relevant questions are welcome, so fire away on topics as diverse as work permits and where to get the best fish and chips. Our real life events and groups also offer an opportunity for our global community to be a part of your life. From London to Manchester and Birmingham, there will be opportunities to enjoy languages, active hobbies, and cultural enrichment, helping you to feel at home in your existing hobbies, in a brand new land. Our larger social events are a chance to branch out and meet the wider InterNations community — we're a friendly and fascinating bunch!
