    Benin with its diverse landscape, from seaside to rugged mountains, may not be a common expat destination, but living in Benin can be a unique experience! While it bears the scars of a complicated history, expats can look forward to getting to know the resulting multifaceted culture of modern Benin.

    Working in Benin can be challenging, but the country is facing a phase of economic growth that it is likely to further open the local job market to expats. Check out our Expat Guide for more information about the local economy and job market, as well as taxes and work permits!
