The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Namibia

Are you an expat working and living in Namibia? Or are you preparing to move soon to Windhoek, Lüderitz or any other of the Namibian international hotspots?

Expat life in Namibia has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the Kalahari Desert, learning how Namibian people celebrate Casinga Day, up to tasting Namibia’s favorite dishes such as traditional meat dishes.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Namibia. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in Qatar to living in UK.

Working and living in Namibia – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Namibia requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Namibian expat life. Living abroad in Namibia raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Namibia?ʺ, ʺAre there still German-language media in Namibia? And what about expat news in English?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Windhoek should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Namibian municipality in Tsumeb?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Namibia is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Namibia aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Namibia. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from local infrastructure, to expat institutions & clubs or restaurants and nightlife, up to food & shopping.
