Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Sierra Leone

The West African country of Sierra Leone is famous for its coastal swamps, incredible mountain ranges, and its wealth of natural resources. The capital of Freetown is an exciting and fun place to live, is home to a number of expats, and has the third-largest natural harbor in the world. The economy in Sierra Leone is largely driven by mining, in particular iron ore. A number of expats move to Sierra Leone to work for multinational companies or to volunteer. While living in Sierra Leone can sometimes be challenging, a number of expats in the country enjoy their lifestyle and a number of expatriates live in Freetown.

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