Learn about Expat Life in the DR Congo

A giant country in the heart of Africa, the DR Congo represents many of the positive aspects of the continent; a vibrant culture with a love of music and celebration, a searing hot climate, and a warm and hospitable population. Those considering a move to the DR Congo are advised to check the ongoing security situation with their national governments before traveling, as some regions are still experiencing unrest. The expat community takes up a lot of roles in international organizations and NGOs, although the capital Kinshasa is a business hub of Africa, and has close links with France. For those expats in the DR Congo that get the chance, there is a huge amount of wildlife to take in during leisure time, with a large number of national parks, many of which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

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. Whether they live in Egypt or United Arab Emirates, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Build Your Network of Expats in the DR Congo

The unique platform that the InterNations expat community provides is never more valued than by those moving to unfamiliar territory, as is the case with many embarking on an African adventure. Whether it is a query about accommodation, jobs, or simply a case of reaching out to make new friends, InterNations can be your support network as you begin expat life. In order to assure a positive user experience, we ask all our members adhere to our strict behavioral code of courtesy and politeness when interacting on the platform. The best advice you can receive is usually from those with first-hand experience of making the move themselves, and that's why InterNations is growing in popularity for those moving to various countries in the African continent. Once you arrive, you can also meet expats and global minds in person at our large community-wide events or by joining a smaller interest-based group.
