Keeping in touch with your Nigerian compatriots is a big part of the expat experience and can help you understand the Beninese people and their culture better. With InterNations, meeting other Nigerians in Benin is a breeze, no matter if you are in Malanville, Porto-Novo, Cotonou or any other expat magnet across the country. Just take our network of Nigerians in Porto-Novo, for example.

    If you are in the mood to speak your mother tongue again, to learn about the best spots to shop for Nigerian food, or to discuss your favorite sports team’s latest match, join the Nigerian InterNations Community:

    • In our huge expat network, you can easily find like-minded expatriates from Nigeria.
    • Our Benin Expat Forums are a great place to share experiences and advice – for example how to find a nanny speaking your language or where to get jolof rice in Porto-Novo...

      Before I came here as an expat, I only knew Benin as home of actor Djimon Honsou. But now Cotonou & InterNations is my home too.
