Are you an expat working and living in Sri Lanka? Or are you preparing to move soon to Colombo, Kandy or any other of the Sri Lankan international hotspots?
Expat life in Sri Lanka has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the spiritual heart of the country, learning how Sri Lankan people celebrate Tamil Thai Pongal Day, up to tasting Sri Lanka’s favorite dishes such as rice and curry.
Moving to and living in Sri Lanka requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Sri Lankan expat life. Living abroad in Sri Lanka raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Sri Lanka?ʺ, ʺWhat are an expat couple's average living expenses in Colombo?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Colombo should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Sri Lankan municipality in Galle?ʺ
Collecting all that information on working and living in Sri Lanka is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Sri Lanka aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Sri Lanka. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from health-care, to restaurants & nightlife or local infrastructure, up to international schools. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺShould I study some basic Sinhala or Tamil, or rather both of them?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
Moreover, our expat directory for Sri Lanka includes recommended listings of expat institutions and relocation services, e.g. specialised travel agents or public utility providers. As a member, you’ll also be able to share your experiences of living abroad in Sri Lanka with your fellow expats on the InterNations Forum. We are looking forward to welcoming you with a heart-felt Piliganimu & enna vishayam from our expats living and working in Sri Lanka.
