Find Out More about Being an Expat in Mauritania

Home to the world's longest trains, Mauritania can further offer some of the most dramatic landscapes of any African country. Its epic sand dunes, green oases and Africa's largest monolith attract tourists and expats alike. Many expats move to Mauritania to work for foreign embassies based in the country — most of which are found in the capital Nouakchott — or to teach English. Depending on your lifestyle, life can be a little expensive in the country, but many expats earn enough to sustain a good life in Mauritania.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 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 Oman or India, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Make Friends and Build Your Expat Network before You Arrive in Mauritania

Feel safe and secure with InterNations. Membership is by approval only, to ensure every member has a good understanding of the guiding principles of InterNations and is polite, open and welcoming towards other cultures and backgrounds. Knowing that you can trust the expats you interact with online means you might also want to meet up with other like-minded expats in Mauritania, offline. At official events, hosted by InterNations, you can do just that! In addition, you have the option of joining in on smaller activities organized by InterNations members. Even if there aren't currently any events taking place in your city, you can connect with other members and simply create your own group(s) that your fellow expats would enjoy, kick starting your social life in your new country almost immediately.
