Welcome to the Expat Somalia Chapter!

Soo dhawoow and a warm welcome to InterNations Somalia! Our network for expats in Somalia is tailored to your particular needs and helps you with moving to and settling in Somalia. Relocating overseas to a foreign country is adventurous and also challenging now and then. For expatriates Somalia a lot of questions come up such as: ʺHow good is the health care system in Somalia and do I need special vaccinations?ʺ, ʺIn which district should we live when moving to Hargaisa?ʺ or ʺHow about the overall safety in Mogadishu?ʺ And many more questions…

InterNations aims to support you, as an expatriate, in getting to know the Somalia expat community and discovering the Somali way of life in all its facets, from having the traditional halwo to celebrating Istunka traditions for the upcoming Somali New Year.

We are present not only in Somalia, but worldwide including numerous countries in Africa – for instance our chapter for Expatriates in Panama. You might also consider to stop by at our Oman Expatriates community during your next travel.

Embark on Somalia Expats Life

From the Suuqa Bakaaraha in Mogadishu to the autonomous region of Somaliland, Somalia has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the growing expat Somalia community is mainly attracted by its economic challenges, e.g. in the telecommunications sector, and the urban development in Mogadishu and Kismayo. Expat living in Somalia surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
