    Information on Expat Life in Ouagadougou

    With an eclectic atmosphere and a festival schedule that seems unending, Ouagadougou certainly has a lot to keep its expats busy. Ouagadougou expats often live in one of the city's many green suburbs rather than the central areas, and with a few tips it's possible for you to settle in easily. Ouagadougou expat life is often easygoing, but knowing that most transactions are made in cash, learning French is essential, and buying the best quality health insurance available is vital will certainly make life smoother. Restaurants like Villa Kaya allow you to eat out for less than your average box of cereal, and more upscale establishments, like La Dave du Petit Paris, give you a taste of France. Ouagadougou is a particularly lucrative move for those wishing to invest in the textile industry, and efforts to help the local community are always appreciated.

    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 Kuala Lumpur or Shenzhen, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

    Improve Your Network of Fellow Expats in Ouagadougou

    Here at InterNations, our community is designed to make your transition easier. By engaging with enthusiasm and being truthful, friendly, and open, you too can begin making valuable contributions.

Once you've arrived, come along to an event organized by InterNations or a fellow member to meet new people, or create your own interest-based InterNations Group and find like-minded expatriates with whom you can pursue your hobbies.
