Start Your New Life as an Expat in Abidjan

Abidjan is recognized as the economic hub of the Ivory Coast, in the West Africa region. For this reason, it is perhaps no surprise that many expats move here for business purposes. Particularly the younger end of the expat community appreciates the vibrant nightlife of Abidjan, where lively bars and clubs make it one of Africa's party capitals. Some of the bars or "maquis" are luxurious open-air complexes, where expats on a night out can enjoy live musical performances. While the city is very well populated with good standard restaurants and shops, expats have, however, reported frustration at the military checkpoints which make moving around the city problematic at times.

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 Dubai or Riyadh, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

The Social Network for Expatriates in Abidjan

Abidjan is considered to be an enjoyable place to live, with plenty to see and do, and it is likely that finding expat friends to appreciate the city with will be a priority for many moving there. InterNations offers a network to connect you with those in the same situation as you, even prior to relocation or when a long way from home! We have a commitment to a respectful and courteous expat in order to assure a pleasant environment for all. This is not only the case for our online platform, but also true for the local events that you can attend in Abidjan. From InterNations Official Events to member-organized, interest-based activities, there'll be plenty to do for you in Abidjan. We look forward to welcoming you into the Abidjan Community!
