    The Persian Gulf is a long way from home, so I was especially glad to discover this super expat community for Doha.

Get Connected to Our Community of Expats in Doha!

As-salām 'alaykum, and a warm welcome to our expat community in Doha! As a platform designed to serve expats from across the globe, InterNations is here to help you work through the challenges of moving to a new city. Expats from across Doha and other areas of Qatar have used our platform to make the transition to their new lifestyles easier. If you're already familiar with Doha, or you have some tips of your own, feel free to contribute to our community so others can benefit! When you become a member of InterNations, you can answer some of those niggling questions prior to your arrival in Doha. Such questions may include, "how do I open a new bank account?", "do I need to get any vaccinations before I arrive?", or even, "which restaurants serve the best Lebanese food?" By drawing on the experience our many members have to offer, you can arm yourself with the right information prior to your arrival. If you find that your question hasn't already been answered, feel free to ask, and our friendly Doha members will soon offer an answer. At InterNations, we aim to help you explore the Qatari way of life in Doha, while helping you meet expats like yourself.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Shanghai or Khobar (Eastern Prov.).

With a population of roughly 900,000, Doha offers a bustling community for expats to immerse themselves in. From its glistening skyline to the majestic Souq Waqif, Doha has plenty to offer in terms of modern and ancient culture. Many Doha expats choose to move to Qatar to benefit from a tax-free lifestyle, high wages, and a generally enhanced quality of living.

Whether you're working in the financial district or elsewhere in Doha, you will benefit from year-round sun. If you are moving to Doha with a young family, you can take advantage of the excellent education opportunities at the Doha British School, the Qatar International School, and many other similar educational establishments. Looking for a bite to eat? Then try the Turkish Central for Middle Eastern cuisine or the Aqua Lounge for a laidback vibe and shisha.

    I loved the InterNations expat gatherings in Doha, and I hope we'll have another opportunity to meet up at 'La Villa' or the golf range.
