Are you preparing for living and working in Benin? Or are you already an expat and have recently relocated to Porto-Novo, Malanville or some other international Beninese city?
The expat relocation to Benin is definitely an exciting international opportunity and cross-cultural adventure: Visiting the landscape such as the northern "Reserve du W du Niger", getting to know how Beninese folks celebrate the Vodun public holiday on January 10, or acquiring a taste for Benin’s popular dishes like kuli-kuli…
Relocating to and living in Benin necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Beninese expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Benin: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Beninese income tax law?ʺ, ʺWhich products should I buy fresh in the local markets?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Porto-Novo?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Beninese residence permit for my wife?ʺ
Looking for so much information on working and living in Benin is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time. The InterNations Expat Guide for Benin is designed to help you and offers trusted information on all issues of interest to expats living in Benin. Various topics are covered in our Benin Expat Guide from culture and sights, to housing & household or restaurants and nightlife, up to food & shopping.
