Embark on Your Expat Life in Sweden

Sweden is a beautiful and exciting country with a whole host of options for expat life. From the international trading hub of Gothenburg to the cultural and architectural delights of the capital Stockholm, economic activity is booming in Sweden and there will be opportunities available for expats of all skill sets and sectors. Swedish culture has been known to be something of shock to many expats, with the generally reserved Swedish often not understanding the ways of outgoing foreigners. However, with the backing of our welcoming and helpful InterNations community available with advice at the click of a button, you shouldn’t have too many problems adjusting to your new expat life in Sweden. Swedish life is a wholesome and healthy one, with a strong emphasis on outdoor activities like hiking and skiing, and a healthy diet to boot, with lots of fish and fresh vegetables. For those of a less outdoorsy persuasion, Sweden has some of the most fashionable and modern new build accommodation in the world, so you can spend your time indoors hiding out from the cold in style.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad 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. Whether they live in Peru or Saudi Arabia, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

The Network for Like-Minded Expats in Sweden

Whether you simply want some expat companions to while away the long hours of darkness with, (Swedish working hours are comparatively lower than many other countries and in winter it can be dark for the most of the day, depending on how far north you live) or some friendly and knowledgeable advice on Swedish life from a fellow expat, InterNations has got your back. One of the most effective methods to help yourself adjust to life in a new country is to continue with your old hobbies and activities, so with a huge range of InterNations Groups available, covering everything from singles meets, to history tours and party weekenders, expats are spoilt for choice with our activities on offer in Sweden. To meet a wide range of expats from different cultures and backgrounds around the world, come our larger community-wide social events at classy venues around the city.

    The best thing about InterNations? Definitely the offline get-together. Meeting other expats in real life helps a lot.
