Meet the InterNations Expat Community of Marrakech!

You've made it to the Red City — welcome to your friendly expat community! InterNations is here to help you settle in and connect you with like-minded expats in the city. You no doubt have a myriad of questions that can seem as confusing as the tight, winding streets of Marrakech itself — "where's the best place to buy my groceries?" or "how do I apply for a residency permit?" Fellow Marrakech expats know exactly how you feel and are more than willing to guide you. Spending a week in Marrakech will leave you with memories of mint tea and bustling bazaars but stay longer and build your life in this culturally rich city, and you'll certainly discover more.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Shanghai or Singapore.

    Actually what brought me to this forum is I'm wondering about the job market and possibilities for expats. I speak Arabic as well.

Getting to Know Marrakech, the Expat Way

By far the biggest work opportunities for both expats and locals are in the growing tourism industry. Between the imposing red sandstone walls, people run, stroll and ride mopeds to unknown destinations or turn into nondescript doorways. Hidden behind these doors you'll find bright, open spaces — and it's here, operating a riad, or guesthouse, where you can exercise your business, architecture, design, and hospitality skills. The majority of tourists in Morocco are French, French being the language used for most government or official business. In everyday life you will more likely hear Arabic or Berber being spoken, so learn a few common phrases to ensure smiles throughout your day! While Marrakech's popular tourist attractions are certainly awe inspiring (the buzzing craft bazaar and ancient mosques, palaces, gardens, and tombs), there are plenty of calm, cool places in which to escape. On a hot summer's day head over to Beldi Country Club or Jnane Tamsna for a dip in their luxurious pools.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world.

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 Riyadh or Dubai, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

    The idea to connect global minds in Rabat is just great. This plattform should have existed when I first moved here four years ago.
