Enjoy Your Pretoria Expat Experience

Pretoria is the administrative capital of South Africa where you'll find the official government buildings, the Union Buildings, and more than 40 international embassies. This diplomatic community makes up much of the expat community in Pretoria, though there are also expats working in education or the business world. The city is certainly easy on the eye; the architecture is grand and gracious with influences from the Dutch, German and British colonizers mixing with a more modern, uniquely South African style. Travel away from the CBD and the top-rated universities and you'll discover wide, leafy suburbs and several national parks. The lifestyle in Pretoria is laid back and many evenings and weekends will be spent enjoying a braai (BBQ) on your back patio or visiting a friend's swimming pool.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad 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 Mumbai or New Delhi, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Join Our Expat Network in Pretoria

The members of our community are from all over the world — America, Portugal, the Netherlands and more — and all follow our community guidelines of trust and respect.

All your burning questions can be posted in the Pretoria Forums, where members can recommend their favorite restaurants or the best doctor in town, all ensuring you have a truly memorable time in South Africa.

    InterNations provided me with an "entrance" to the expat circles of Pretoria, so to speak, and helped me get to know other French expatriates.
