Our unique platform has been especially created to support expats as they relocate and live abroad.

We also have an excellent social forum where you can get further help and support from fellow expats who have already made the move. Voice your concerns or ask questions and our members will be happy to share their experience and knowledge.

N'Djamena is one of the hottest major cities on the planet, which may take some time to become accustomed to but does make for spectacular sunsets over the river. Expats will find a mix of religions here, with both mosques and cathedrals standing out as popular landmarks. There is also a busy market (Grand Marche) where residents can experience the real N'Djamena and shop for a range of ever-changing goods. The city's economy relies mainly on the exportation of agricultural products, such as livestock, grains, fish, and cotton. Expats with university degrees or considerable experience will find opportunities open to them and foreign NGO workers, medical practitioners, as well as English language teachers are consistently in demand.
