Begin Your Expat Life in Malawi

Malawi is a country with a rich and powerful history. Dancing is a vital part of the culture, and the country is also known for its white sandy beaches and beautiful landscape, particularly at Cape Maclear. However, while the local culture is certainly something expatriates can look forward to explore, most expats are drawn to Malawi by its economic potential, NGO work, or by the developments taking place in Blantyre and Lilongwe.

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 United States of America or United Arab Emirates, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Connect with Other Expats in Malawi and Grow Your Network

At InterNations, we link you with other expats in Malawi to provide support and guidance, covering all areas of concern, whether that be on practical matters, such as what type of vaccinations you will need, or how to find a doctor, to cultural questions surrounding the arts, social etiquette and general lifestyle. Through InterNations, you can ask other members any question you may have and get experienced and knowledgeable advice. We also understand how important it is to continue with personal hobbies, and to carve out a vibrant social life when moving to a new country. That’s why InterNations enables you to join or even create your own interest-based group(s), providing you with the opportunity to socialize with like-minded people. There are also larger social events, hosted by InterNations, that are a great opportunity for expats to meet like-minded people in Malawi.
