Salut & as-salām 'alaykum and a very warm welcome to the expat community in Mauritania! If you are moving to Mauritania or are just considering becoming an expat in the African country, then InterNations is the network for you. Our expat community in Mauritania can assist you in making your move abroad as smooth as possible. Ask the community whatever questions you may have, from “which neighborhood should we move to in Nouakchott?” to “what is the healthcare system like in Mauritania?” and your fellow expats in Mauritania will be happy to answer as well as offer advice and their own personal experiences to help you.
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 Vietnam or Philippines.
Attend our monthly events and activities for Mauritania expatriates to get to know like-minded expatriates in real life.
Get trustworthy advice and local insights from fellow members in our Mauritania expat forums.
Home to the world's longest trains, Mauritania can further offer some of the most dramatic landscapes of any African country. Its epic sand dunes, green oases and Africa's largest monolith attract tourists and expats alike. Many expats move to Mauritania to work for foreign embassies based in the country — most of which are found in the capital Nouakchott — or to teach English. Depending on your lifestyle, life can be a little expensive in the country, but many expats earn enough to sustain a good life in Mauritania.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Oman or India, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Feel safe and secure with InterNations. Membership is by approval only, to ensure every member has a good understanding of the guiding principles of InterNations and is polite, open and welcoming towards other cultures and backgrounds. Knowing that you can trust the expats you interact with online means you might also want to meet up with other like-minded expats in Mauritania, offline. At official events, hosted by InterNations, you can do just that! In addition, you have the option of joining in on smaller activities organized by InterNations members. Even if there aren't currently any events taking place in your city, you can connect with other members and simply create your own group(s) that your fellow expats would enjoy, kick starting your social life in your new country almost immediately.
