Managing your expectations before moving to a new city with an all-new culture can be a big help. Considering what will change and how it will impact your life is an important part of the expatriation process. Here we present a few bits of information that will make moving to New Delhi a joyful ride for you.

Settling down in New Delhi, especially if you have never been to India before, can initially cause many culture shocks. It can be quite hard to adapt to an entirely new way of life. But knowledge about the local culture and a few adjustment tips will help you ease into the city and truly enjoy everything that New Delhi has to offer. 

New Delhi is the official national capital of India. It is also the second most populated city in the country. Spread over an area of 1,484 square kilometres, Delhi is home to some highly dynamic neighbourhoods. Good knowledge of these neighbourhoods will help you find the right accommodation that fits your needs. Here we present a brief overview of New Delhi's neighbourhoods.

Once you have settled in New Delhi, particularly if you are planning to stay here long-term, you can consider buying your own property. Though, keep in mind that buying a property in New Delhi is a rather complicated affair and hiring a professional lawyer to help with the technicalities is a good idea. It is also important to note that you must possess a resident permit of India before you can buy a property here.

New Delhi, being the capital of India, employs a large number of people in a variety of job sectors. The local job market is quite open to skilled foreign professionals and offers lucrative career prospects.
