"As someone with a life-long interest in Central Africa, it wasn't hard for me to move here. For my wife it was not that easy. She met other spouses through InterNations, though."

Welcome to the InterNations Community of Expats in the Congo!

Salut, welcome to InterNations Congo!

Embracing Your Expat Life in Congo

Steaming with exotic wildlife and breathtaking jungle forests, Congo has a reputation among more adventurous travelers as being one of the finest ecotourism destinations in the world. The charm and relaxed culture of Brazzaville has stolen the hearts of many, however, we find our expats are often drawn to Congo for professional and business opportunities, particularly in the area of urban development in the capital. Whatever your reason for choosing a new life in Congo, we’re sure that adventure awaits you.
