Our Community of Expatriates in Asmara Welcomes You!

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.

Start Your New Life as an Expat in Asmara

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.
