Merhaba and greetings to our expats living in Asmara, the capital of Eritrea! Moving to the African continent can mean embarking on a journey into unknown territory for many, but you needn't be alone anywhere in the world. InterNations allows you to connect, discuss, network, and socialize with fellow expats in your city or region. "Will I need a car in Asmara?", "is English widely spoken?", or "which mobile phone provider is the best?" might be questions you are keen to ask other expats' opinions on, and InterNations is the place to do it.
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in New York or Bangalore.
Attend our monthly events and activities for Asmara expatriates to get to know like-minded expatriates in real life.
Get trustworthy advice and local insights from fellow members in our Asmara expat forums.
Eritrea can be seen as an insular country, so many expats have reported they were happy and surprised to discover through InterNations that there were fellow expats living in the same area! Eritreans are known to be warm people with an enthusiasm for hospitality, so you needn't be scared of not finding local friends either. Expats in Asmara have a number of activities at their doorstep, from outdoor activities such as hiking and climbing — if you can stand doing so in the heat — to the local Biet Ghiorghis Zoo and Park. The city center features colonial Italian architecture and no shortage of restaurants for expats to enjoy a taste of home.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Budapest or Buenos Aires, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Going out for a coffee with a friend is just as easy in Asmara as the rest of the world. For one thing, Asmarians love their coffee, and the ability to find friendly fellow expats in the cities is provided by InterNations. After all, you can not only use our platform to get in touch and connect with members of the Asmara Community online, but our InterNations Groups are primed for offline activities, too. We promote an atmosphere of respect and courtesy among members, in order to improve the experience for all.
