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 Singapore or Shanghai.
With a tropical climate and the beautiful surroundings of rainforests, sandy beaches, and coral reefs to explore, expats can take advantage of the outdoor lifestyle and range of amenities aimed at tourists. Our expats hail from all corners of the Earth, most of whom head to the capital, Port of Spain and other large cities, including Scarborough and San Fernando. Trinidad & Tobago's economy is driven by the oil and natural gas industries accounting for a large proportion of the county's GDP. Electronics and financial services are significant employers and the tourism sector is growing. Due to a highly educated workforce, expat investors have moved to the islands to set up their own companies.
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 Riyadh or Dubai, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
It can be difficult to build a new social life from scratch in an unfamiliar city, but once you arrive in Trinidad & Tobago you can start making new friends immediately by attending our events and joining our groups. At our regular, large events we give our members the chance to have fun together, network with others, and make plans. Expand your social circle when you find one of our InterNations Groups to join, where our expats share their interests in barbecuing, dining out, and outdoor activities.
