    Thanks to InterNations, we found a flat here in Luanda, and a big obstacle to settling in as expats in Angola had been removed.

Welcome to Our Expat Community in Angola!

Olá and a warm welcome to the Angola expat community, your home away from home for meeting fellow Angola expats. Here at InterNations, we offer a platform that allows you to see what life in Angola is like before you move there. Whether you're heading for Luanda, Huambo, or elsewhere in the country, our members are here to help you settle in. Before moving to Angola, you may have questions like, "what is the healthcare system like?" and "can I afford to rent there?". While rental prices are high in Angola, there are multiple opportunities to thrive in the country's oil industry, and the healthcare system is reliable in the major cities.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like China or Bahrain.

Begin Your New Life as an Expat in Angola

As an area of the world that remains virtually untouched by foreign visitors, Angola is an ideal expat destination for those who want something a little different. Although the country's infrastructure requires a lot of development, its oil industry is booming, so the earning potential for outsiders is high. Luanda is well known for being the most expensive expat city to rent in, but with the high prices in its many expat communities comes the benefits of safety, a wealth of friends, good educational facilities, and access to home comforts. If you're the type of Angola expat who loves a good meal, you can indulge in one of the country's many restaurants. This includes Chill Out and Pimm's in Luanda, plus Tudo na Brasa in Benguela. While Angola still has a lot of developing to do, it has plenty to offer its expats.

The Network for Like-Minded Expatriates in Angola

At InterNations, we offer a thriving community for expatriates in Angola. By remaining polite and making positive contributions, you stand to benefit from the knowledge of our many members. As each Angola expatriate has been through the relocation process themselves, they can offer you practical and experience-based advice on finding a bank account, renting a property, and navigating the roads there. Once you have the practical lay of the land, why not use InterNations to make new friends? We regularly host events for our Angola expatriates, and our members also organize activities based on their hobbies and interests.
