Our Favourite Singapore Expat Forums


When moving to Singapore, expat forums become a goldmine of information. There is nothing like first-hand experience; hearing from others can help you make the right decisions before, during and after your move to Singapore. Being in contact with other expats will help make it easier for you to understand the customs and traditions of your new host country. The value of being surrounded by likeminded individuals who have been through the same trials of international relocating should not be underestimated. Being able to talk to people who understand your frustrations and accomplishments when settling into your new home can help you settle in more effectively. 

The teams of experienced moving consultants at Allied have compiled a list of our favourite Singapore expat forums:

This is another very active forum. Although it is mainly aimed at British expats, you will find plenty of useful information regardless of your nationality. Forum users will have no problem answering your questions.

Singapore Expats Facebook Group

The internet has definitely changed how people interact with their local contemporaries and nowadays it is much easier to find quick answers to any queries. Joining as many Singapore expat forums as you like will allow you to hear from people who have gone through the same hiccups and hurdles when looking for work, accommodation or when dealing with immigration matters in the Lion City.
