Our Expat Community in Niger Welcomes You!

Salut! Welcome to InterNations Niger, where we hope to enable you to make the most of all that this generous country has to offer.

With InterNations, you never stand alone.

Embracing Your Expat Life in Niger

Niger is a vast country, boasting fascinating safari opportunities in Koure, to archeological jewels in the Tenere Desert. Its capital, Niamey, is a bustling city, with the Petit Marche located in the center of the town offering unparalleled culinary treats. For those expats interested in history and architecture, the National Museum, also in Niamey, is known by travelers as one of West Africa’s most interesting sites. Niger is experiencing much urban and economic development, and most expats are relocating there to make the most of the opportunities in the mining industry, or to work in the charitable sector. Whatever your reason for relocating to Niger, by connecting with our experienced Niger expats on InterNations, you can make the most of your time in Niger, embracing all that the country has to offer.
