What to Expect from Expat Life in Rabat?

Rabat is a modern city, known as Morocco's political and economic capital. Many of our expats are drawn there for work, enjoying the business opportunities available in this cosmopolitan city. However, it is also a city that offers ocean views, hidden art galleries, and stunning colonial architecture. Rabat Beach is considered one of the best locations for a day off in the sun, or, if you prefer something more active, the El Jadida Golf Club offers immaculate greens to a backdrop of jasmine flowers and turquoise seas. Whatever your reason for relocating to Rabat, our expat community can help you make the most of your new life.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere 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.

Find New Friends and Grow Your Network of Expats in Rabat

The members of our Rabat Community come from all over the world, but they all have one thing in common; they have chosen to settle in Rabat, and are experienced and understanding of the complexities of locating to a new country. That's why access to their knowledge base and advice, through our community, proves to be so vital to new Rabat expats. Additionally to the online-aspect of our network, our members have the option to meet other like-minded expats face-to-face; our members in Rabat regularly organize groups and get-togethers following a range of interests or hobbies, which are a great opportunity to begin carving out a social life. Groups in Rabat cover sports, dinner, lunch, or brunch get-togethers and more. If you have an interest or hobby not represented in one of the groups, why not create your own? Lastly, InterNations also regularly hosts larger events that are open to all our members in Rabat; a great opportunity to network and meet like-minded people.
