Moving to Jalandhar

A large modern road network serving the city has recently been built, with a large number of buses and coaches providing expats moving to Jalandhar with routes to major northwestern Indian cities. The city's railway station is also well-served with trains to the capital, New Delhi, as well as Bombay and other major cities. The relatively nearby city of Amritsar also provides expatriates moving to Jalandhar with an international airport, the Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport, which is served by flights from the United Kingdom, Dubai and other destinations. However you travel, expats moving to Jalandhar may also like to get in touch with the city's local international network for hints and tips, or to organize a meet-up once they have arrived. The forums and private message system on the InterNations website provide an ideal way to do this, as well as to get the latest information from local global minds and fellow expatriates in Jalandhar.

As a result, there will always be something new for expats working in Jalandhar to see or do. This is not to say that the ancient city's cultural life is suffering, either. Every year, the large Sri Rama Navmi Shobhayatra procession fills the streets of Jalandhar and is a sight not soon forgotten. Expatriates working in Jalandhar will also enjoy the busy street life with sweet, spiced Indian chai for sale everywhere and the aromas of wonderful dishes wafting through the air.
