Make Your Expat Life Easier With InterNations
Posted by Andrew Penfold on May 16, 2014 - 5:41:10 AM

GERMANY—InterNations is the world’s largest expatriate network. It was created to help members meet other high-profile expatriates from around the world living in their city and connect with them, both online and offline through events and activities.

InterNations also offers its members the know-how and support to make moving abroad more manageable. InterNations was founded in 2007 and now has over 1 million members in more than 390 Local Communities around the world, 38 of which are located in the United States.

Whether you are planning to move to the United States or have already arrived, InterNations provides help for expats in many ways. Before you move, you can read through the guide section of the website, which has extensive information on many topics relevant to expats moving to the USA. These include how to get a visa and work permit, tips for buying property or renting an apartment, information on how to find a job, advice on what type of school to send your children to and much more.

In the forum section, you can ask other expats your specific questions about what life in the USA will be like. In this way, you can prepare for your move abroad as much as possible before your departure date.

InterNations is the world’s largest expatriate network.

However, even with the best-laid plans, you are bound to experience some culture shock when you first arrive in the USA. At InterNations events and activities, you can meet other expats and globally minded people. Being able to share your experiences with other people who understand what you are going through can ease the transition process.

Official InterNations events take place between once and four times a month, depending on the size of the InterNations Community in a particular city. InterNations has 6 Local Communities in California, in Los Angeles, Orange County, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco and Silicon Valley. InterNations events are held at classy and exclusive locations and are a great place to network and meet new people.

If you prefer a smaller crowd, then InterNations activities are the right choice for you. There are activity groups for many different interests, from dining out to sports and cultural activities. If you can’t find your particular interest on offer, you can always start your own activity group!

Living in such a diverse country, in terms of both culture and landscape, is one of the benefits of living in the USA as an expat. Make sure you take the time to explore the different regions of the USA. With InterNations, if you travel within the United States (or around the world) for business or pleasure, you can easily connect with expats and attend InterNations events and activities in other cities, or get any questions you may have about the best places to eat and sights to see answered by other members.

As a member of InterNations, no matter where in the world you travel, you’ll always be able to connect with other international people quickly and easily. So what are you waiting for? Sign up today and let InterNations make your expat life easier!
