Welcome to the InterNations Expat Community Here in San Diego!

Hello, and welcome to the InterNations Community of expats in San Diego, California. Join InterNations to take the worry out of relocating to one of America's sunniest climes. InterNations is a global network of expats and global minds especially created to support expats and is packed with comprehensive guides, advice, and essential information. By reading our guide articles or asking in our members questions in the forums, you can prepare for your relocation, overcome obstacles, and find answers to questions such as, "what type of visa will I need?" and "what healthcare options are available?". Our forum provides first-hand advice from our friendly expats who are happy to share their experiences and answer your questions. Remember, they've negotiated this tricky process before, so take advantage of their knowledge on everything from negotiating real estate prices to finding the best place to buy roller blades.
