The InterNations Expatriate Community in Lille Welcomes You!

Salut, and a very warm welcome to our expat community here in Lille in the north of France! InterNations is a network for expatriates around the globe to share tips and advice on living and working abroad, and to meet new people. Members of our Lille Community will be happy to help you with any questions you might have, whether you're considering making a move or are already living and working in the city and need some other advice. You may be wondering "how can I get covered for health insurance if I'm living in France without an EU passport?" or "what is the cost of living in Lille compared to Paris?". Whatever you need to know, our members are always happy to help, so you'll find yourself getting settled and starting your new life in France in no time.

A visit of our community for Khobar (Eastern Prov.) Expats is recommend if other InterNations chapters across Western Europe are of interest for you. Or your next business trip takes you to our Jeddah Expats chapter…

Lille Expat Events

A Picturesque Town in Northern France

Lille may not be one of the best-known of France's major cities, but there's no question that it can rival the best of anything Bordeaux, Marseille or even Paris have to offer. Post-industrial regeneration, along with superb transport links thanks to the Eurostar, has given a once-bleak town a new lease of life. Visitors can now expect to find stunning cuisine, great museums and galleries, and all of the best that France has to offer without the inconvenience of life in the south or the expense of Paris. A vibrant and transforming economy has helped attract expatriates from all over the world, who are coming for plenty of reasons besides just work.

A Warm Welcome to Newcomers in Our Expat Community

As well as being knowledgeable and experienced, our members have gone through an approval process first to give you the best experience possible when interacting with the group or asking for advice. Once you've joined and made a few posts in our forum, had some of your questions answered, and connected with people online, you can also take things a step further — our members organize a wide range of offline activities and are always delighted to meet new members, whether it's sporting activities or something a little more cerebral you're after. Our larger, official events in Lille always attract huge interest, too, so be careful you don't miss them!
