Expat Arrivals Guide to Living and Working in Johannesburg

The ultimate tool for expats moving to Johannesburg


The Expat Arrivals Johannesburg Guide provides you with all the relocation information you need in an easy and convenient format. This fantastic tool is filled with up-to-date, accurate and relevant content crucial to your move overseas, and is based on the advice of local expats living and working in Johannesburg.

Find the answers to questions you have about organising housing, finding the right school for your little one, negotiating the country's much talked about crime rate, capitalising on the best that the City of Gold has to offer and enjoying the country's vibrant cultural diversity. After all, Johannesburg may afford its residents a great quality of life, but such a perk doesn't alleviate the stress of relocation, and the right kind of preparation is paramount to a successful move.

With your purchase you'll be able to download the Johannesburg PDF guide and will also get full access to the online South Africa guide, incorporating guides to Johannesburg and Cape Town.
