Nations living in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, UAE

Are you looking to meet others who share your culture in Dubai or Abu Dhabi?
Join your Nationality Group on ExpatConnect!

Find your cultural family while abroad.

If you’re new to the UAE, it can feel like you’re surrounded by strangers. But the Emirates are full of expats from all over the world, and there are certainly people here who share the same home country as you. On ExpatConnect we have made it easy for you to meet these expats and start building connections with them in our Nationality groups.

Bond through shared culture and language.

Who is easier to connect with than someone from your home country? With so much in common, it’s simple to make connections and start forming friendships. Whether you miss a particular food, talking in your own language, or simply discussing what’s going on back home, you can do this both online and offline in our Nationality based groups.

Participate in exciting meet-ups that celebrate your heritage.

Choose from a variety of real life meet-ups in Dubai in your Nationality Group on ExpatConnect. Attend meet-ups organized by your group leader or you can even suggest or organize your own meet-ups through the site. Don’t miss out on celebrating holidays from home and making new connections.

It’s easy to feel homesick in Dubai, but your fellow countrymen will make sure that doesn’t happen.

When you are living in the UAE, it’s easy to miss aspects of your home country. So think of our Nationality groups as a community of support away from home. The best way to prevent homesickness is to stay busy, meeting new people, forming friendships, and taking part in exciting activities. You will find all this and more in your Nationality group on ExpatConnect.
