Reliable Information about living and working in Kenya

Relocating to and living in Kenya necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Kenyan expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Kenya: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Kenyan income tax law?ʺ, ʺIs it difficult to apply for a work permit?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Nairobi?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Kenyan residence permit for my wife?ʺ

Looking for so much information on working and living in Kenya is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time. The InterNations Expat Guide for Kenya is designed to help you and offers trusted information on all issues of interest to expats living in Kenya. Various topics are covered in our Kenya Expat Guide from travel and accommodation, to education & children or local infrastructure, up to restaurants & nightlife. Such characteristic questions that concern expat life abroad as ʺHow bad is air pollution in Nairobi?ʺ will no more remain open.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Kenya. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on working in Ecuador or living in Portugal.
