The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Greece

Are you an expat working and living in Greece? Or are you preparing to move soon to Athens, Larissa or any other of the Greek international hotspots?

Expat life in Greece has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the countless isles scattered throughout the Aegean and Ionian Seas, learning how Greek people celebrate Epetios tou Ohi, up to tasting Greece’s favorite dishes such as moussaka.

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