Meet the InterNations Expat Community of Seattle!
Welcome to Seattle, and to the InterNations Community dedicated to supporting you as you relocate to one of America's most educated cities. We have amassed a comprehensive list of guides, advice, and insider tips, from finding accommodation to driving in the USA. When you join InterNations, you can get the answers to questions like, "how do I access healthcare?" and "should I live in the suburbs or the city?". Especially created for expats, our aim is to remove the obstacles you may face when relocating and allow you to relax and enjoy your new adventure ahead. We also invite you to visit our forum, where fellow expats living in Seattle are happy to share their knowledge on all aspects of daily life, from recommending the best party spots to using public transportation.
A visit of our community for Expatriate Riyadh is recommend if other InterNations chapters across North & South America are of interest for you. Or your next business trip takes you to our Singapore Expat chapter…

Seattle Expat Guide
Embark on a New Life in Seattle
The primary industries of Seattle are engineering, healthcare, service and design, while internet and technology companies also provide employment to computer analysts and web developers. Healthcare professionals including physical therapists and optometrists are also in demand, but expats will face competition for the best jobs.
Busy nightlife can be found in Belltown, Pioneer Square, or Capitol Hill, with Ballard providing a quieter, classier atmosphere. Indulge your inner gourmand, enjoy large, typically American, shopping malls or soak up the atmosphere in one of the sporting arenas. With parks and lakes providing spaces to cycle, hike, or kayak, along with museums and a thriving arts scene which includes the famed Seattle Opera, there is plenty to fill your days in the Emerald City.
Make Friends in Seattle with InterNations Groups
It can be difficult to know where to meet new people when relocating, but pursuing your interests with friends can make all the difference to enjoying the novelties of a new home. With InterNations, you'll not only have access to our online resources but you'll meet fellow expats in person at our regular events, meet professional contacts, or just make friends and have fun. Find like-minded expats in our groups and share your love of hiking, coffee, or dining. Building a social network is important, and we warmly invite you to use InterNations to help build your full life in Seattle.
