Our Expat Community in Rwanda Welcomes You!

Muraho, and welcome to InterNations' expat community in Rwanda, where you can find all the information you need before you begin your adventure. It's perfectly natural to have anxieties when considering taking such a big step as relocation, and you might have questions like, “should I move to Kigali or Butare?”, “what is the overall safety of Rwanda?”, or “which vaccinations will I need?”. At InterNations, we link you up with a community of Rwanda expats who will be able to answer questions such as these and any others that may be concerning you, leaving you free to embrace the richness of everything Rwanda has to offer; from tasting the traditional Isombe, to enjoying Rwanda’s strong relationship with performing arts, music, and dance.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like Panama or Italy.

Embracing Your Expat Life in Rwanda

From the mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park, to the spectacular beauty of the Nyungwe Forest, Rwanda has risen from its troubled past to earn the title among travelers of “Land of a Thousand Hills”. The gorgeous landscape and nature reserves draw many an adventurer, however, we find many of our expats are intrigued by Rwanda for the urban development taking place in its major cities, and for the opportunities presented in its thriving cement industry. Whatever your reason for moving there, we’re sure Rwanda will provide the experience of a lifetime.

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 Belgium or Egypt, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Grow Your Network of Like-Minded Expats from All over the World

Our Rwanda expat community can provide help and support for a variety of concerns, from the practical, such as “how do I organize a doctor in Rwanda?”, to less specific questions, such as what to expect from the culture. We have also noticed that, when embarking on a new life abroad, it is vital to our expats that they are offered the opportunity to continue their passions, adopt new hobbies, and develop a social life. That is why we at InterNations provide you with larger social and networking events as well as smaller interest-based groups hosted by other Rwanda expats, giving you a great opportunity to assimilate into your new life as easily as possible. Currently, there are groups running in Kigali offering bowling, karaoke, outdoor adventures, and much more. Our larger events offer an excellent opportunity to meet fascinating, like-minded people from around the world.
