Learn about Expat Life in Chad

Chad is a geographically vast country in the central-northern region of the African continent. The north is mostly made up of the Sahara Desert but there is also wildlife for expats to enjoy, including at the Zakouma National Park. Expats in Chad often work for NGOs and other international organizations, and many report that goods such as fast food or Western-style casual clothing are not readily available, unsurprisingly increasing the need for sharing and solidarity among the international community! Nevertheless, Chad's people are noted for their hospitable nature, and you should have no problem settling down and feeling welcome in this African country.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad 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.
