Local Immigrant Population*


*Immigrant Population is an estimated sum of the number of naturalized Americans from this country and citizens from this country living in the Seattle Metro Area under any sort of immigration visa.  It does not count the American offspring or descendants of immigrants from this country, which can go back many generations and account for large numbers of people.  1,000 is the default number when we don’t have a better count.


Zulu (most common), Ndebele, Pedi, Sotho, Swati, Tsonga, Tswana, Venḓa, Xhosa, and Afrikaans. The eleventh official language is English.


South Africa has nearly a dozen official languages and at least as many types of cuisine, influenced from all over the world.  It is a major producer of wine, like WA state.  Immigration to America by South Africans is a relatively new phenomenon.  A Facebook group for South Africans in Seattle has over one thousand subscribers.  If you work in local tech or medicine, then you probably have met at least one local South African by now.

A preliminary search online for local cultural or community associations specific to South Africa came up sadly sapless.  Perhaps it should be no surprise, given the diversity of South Africa itself, that a more pronounced, unified cultural presence has not emerged from South Africans in Seattle, which would surely benefit from more South African music, dance, and fashion.   More research is required about South Africans in Seattle for next profile update.

Why does Seattle need this directory?


Covid has ruined the travel plans of so many people.  Maybe you are one of them.  Family trips, honeymoons, first time overseas trips postponed and cancelled.  Please explore this directory to create your own Round-the-World experience without traveling far from Seattle.  


Believe it or not, in 2022, New York City passed a law granting non-US citizens the right to vote in certain local and municipal elections.  Will Seattle follow NYC?  Time will tell.  If that comes to be, then this directory should be indispensable.  Let us know what you think.
