A big Scottish welcome to our community in Aberdeen! InterNations serves as a platform and social network for expatriates around the world. We can help you assess the risks and rewards of making the step to moving abroad, as well as providing you with tips from members of our Aberdeen Community who can give you the benefit of their experience. There are plenty of expatriates here who have been in exactly the same boat, and will be happy to share their knowledge with you. When you join InterNations, you'll be able to look for help with all your concerns, whether it's enquiring about the situation for oil industry workers, deciding on moving to the Merchant's Quarter, or finding out about the situation with free education and healthcare for expatriates. Whatever your question, you'll be sure to find plenty of members willing to help out.
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Khobar (Eastern Prov.) or Jeddah.
Aberdeen has become a huge center for expatriates in recent years due to the explosion of the oil industry, and the rapid growth in other businesses to support it. The old granite town has taken on a new lease of life, with workers from all over the world building their communities in the area and taking advantage of a city of opportunity, which has become the richest city in Scotland and boasts an even higher concentration of millionaires than London.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere 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 Abu Dhabi or Dubai, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
The members of our Aberdeen Community are always happy to help out new arrivals, and provide a thriving community for you to join, online as well as face-to-face. Membership is by approval only, so you can be sure of a pleasant experience when using the network. In addition to the online aspect of InterNations, our members can also enjoy the InterNations Official Events in Aberdeen, as well as become members of various InterNations Groups for a range of activities. You can take advantage of Scotland and Aberdeen's outstanding culinary scene with our DinnerNations Group, join a group dedicated to music and the arts to get news on the best local events, or even set up your own group for other types of activities. If you've just moved to Aberdeen or are considering taking the step, our community will be happy to help you with the practicalities of moving and help you get settled once you've arrived.
