Find Out More about Being an Expat in Macedonia

The stunning and diverse landscapes of Macedonia are among the true hidden gems of the Balkan region. From the mountains of Mavrovo to the breathtaking Lake Ohrid, the Macedonian countryside is an ecologically diverse paradise. In the major cities such as Skopje and Bitola, you'll find a quirky mix of past, present and future, with a welcoming populace and a lively nightlife. Many expats are drawn to opportunities in key industries such as agriculture, construction, ICT, and tourism. Having survived the collapse of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s relatively unscathed, some ethnic and political tensions still hang over the country — particularly around the borders with Kosovo and Albania, but on the whole, foreign residents should enjoy a safe and comfortable experience in this lively and distinct republic.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Australia or United States of America, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
