    I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming.

Welcome to the Belfast Expatriate Community!

A very warm welcome to our expat community here in Belfast! InterNations is a global network for expatriates in cities all over the world, helping you to interact and associate with a variety of fellow expats in your chosen country or city. If you're thinking of taking the step of living in a new country, there are plenty of potential hurdles and pitfalls you'll want to be wary of — and that's why our community is here. By taking advantage of our collective wisdom, you can make sure that everything goes smoothly and there are no nasty surprises waiting. You might want to know "is the Newtownards Road safe at night?" or "what level of healthcare will I be eligible for in the UK?", and our members will be happy to help with anything you have to ask.

Having a Great Experience as an Expat in Belfast

Compared to its larger, southern neighbour, less is known about Northern Ireland and Belfast, but after the end of The Troubles the city has taken on a new lease of life and is now a popular destination for tourists on city breaks and executives on business alike. Extensive regeneration means that you can get just as good cuisine or culture in Belfast as you would in any other major European city, with excellent seafood being a highlight. There's also a variety of new public arts venues, and tourism in the surrounding area has been further boosted by the filming of the popular TV series Game of Thrones taking place in the countryside. Belfast also boasts stunning architecture, particularly in the Queens and Cathedral Quarters.

Take Advantage of Our Local Expat Community in Belfast

Our network here is as friendly as the locals, and will help get you off to a good start by answering any questions you may have. But you can also take the experience offline too, attending one of our large community-wide social and networking events or by joining one of our groups and meeting new people straight away, from our women only group to our special film club, or you could start your own with like-minded community members. The possibilities are endless when you take part in our community.
