Welcome to the Expat Nigeria Chapter!
Ẹ n lẹ, hello, ilo la, lafia lau, and a warm welcome to InterNations Nigeria! Our network for expats in Nigeria is tailored to your particular needs and helps you with moving to and settling in Nigeria. Relocating overseas to a foreign country is adventurous and also challenging now and then. For expatriates Nigeria a lot of questions come up such as: ʺHow good is the health care system in Nigeria and do I need special vaccinations?ʺ, ʺIn which district should we live when moving to Lagos?ʺ or ʺHow about the overall safety in Abuja?ʺ And many more questions…
InterNations aims to support you, as an expatriate, in getting to know the Nigeria expat community and discovering the Nigerian way of life in all its facets, from having the traditional jolof rice to celebrating the Eyo festivities in the Lagos area.
We are present not only in Nigeria, but worldwide including numerous countries in Africa – for instance our chapter for Expatriates Saudi Arabia. You might also consider to stop by at our Expat in Malaysia community during your next travel.

Nigeria Expat Guide
Embark on Nigeria Expats Life
From the Osun-Osogbo Sacred Grove, dedicated to the river goddess Oshun to the dye pits of Kano, Nigeria has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the growing expat Nigeria community is mainly attracted by its economic challenges, e.g. in the petro sector, and the urban development in Abuja and Kano. Expat living in Nigeria surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
The Network for like-minded Expatriates in Nigeria
In our social network, you can easily get in touch with other expatriates living in Nigeria in a private and protected environment where trust, confidence and friendly ‘netiquette’ are essentials. You may ask other expat members from Nigeria’s international community about insider tips, e.g. how to obtain a work permit. Moreover, you’ll also meet your fellow expatriates in Nigeria in real life at our top-quality InterNations Get-Togethers – the best way for casual socializing in the capital city and other places like Lagos or Kano for all members of the Nigeria expat community.
