Welcome to the Expat Sierra Leone Chapter!
Hello and a warm welcome to InterNations Sierra Leone! Our network for expats in Sierra Leone is tailored to your particular needs and helps you with moving to and settling in Sierra Leone. Relocating overseas to a foreign country is adventurous and also challenging now and then. For expatriates Sierra Leone a lot of questions come up such as: ʺHow good is the health care system in Sierra Leone and do I need special vaccinations?ʺ, ʺIn which district should we live when moving to Bo?ʺ or ʺHow about the overall safety in Freetown?ʺ And many more questions…
InterNations aims to support you, as an expatriate, in getting to know the Sierra Leone expat community and discovering the Sierra Leonian way of life in all its facets, from having the traditional groundnut stew to celebrating Maulid-un-Nabi.

Embark on Sierra Leone Expats Life
From the coastal belt of mangrove swamps to the unspoiled beaches near the capital, Sierra Leone has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the growing expat Sierra Leone community is mainly attracted by its economic challenges, e.g. in the lumber industry, and the urban development in Freetown and Kenema. Expat living in Sierra Leone 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 Sierra Leone
In our social network, you can easily get in touch with other expatriates living in Sierra Leone in a private and protected environment where trust, confidence and friendly ‘netiquette’ are essentials. You may ask other expat members from Sierra Leone’s international community about insider tips, e.g. how to obtain a work permit. Moreover, you’ll also meet your fellow expatriates in Sierra Leone in real life at our top-quality InterNations Get-Togethers – the best way for casual socializing in the capital city and other places like Bo or Kenema for all members of the Sierra Leone expat community.
