Working and living in Ethiopia with the InterNations Expat Guide

Are you preparing for living and working in Ethiopia? Or are you already an expat and have recently relocated to Addis Ababa, Dire Dawa or some other international Ethiopian city?

The expat relocation to Ethiopia is definitely an exciting international opportunity and cross-cultural adventure: Visiting the landscape such as some of Africa's highest mountains and largest caves, getting to know how Ethiopian folks celebrate Enkutatash, or acquiring a taste for Ethiopia’s popular dishes like doro wat…

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Ethiopia, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from live in Italy to live in Iceland.
