Moving to Sousse

Expatriates moving to Sousse will find that the city has a low cost of living compared to other cities in the country, and much lower than comparable cities on the Mediterranean found in other countries. The city is a popular destination with tourists because of its many beaches as well as the weather, which tends to be warm throughout the year, with a hotter period in the summer months. Expats relocating to Sousse will find a number of transport options available including trains and buses for exploring the rest of Tunisia, with regular services to the capital Tunis. The nearest airport, the Monastir – Habib Bourguiba International Airport, is approximately 20 minutes away from the city. In order to get more information about moving to Sousse, expatriates should join InterNations where they can interact and communicate with fellow expats who may be able to offer useful information about the city, as well as what life is like for an expatriate living in Tunisia.

Working in Sousse

Much of Sousse’s economy is reliant on the tourism industry, and as a result there are a number of hotels in the city, as well as bars, shops and restaurants in which expatriates looking for work in Sousse may find opportunities. As well as tourism, there are a number of other industries present in the city, and expats working in Sousse will find that Sousse is well-known for producing olive oil and textiles, whilst the production of transport equipment also provides opportunities. InterNations is a fantastic website which not only offers useful and exciting content geared towards the expat community, but also has members from all over the world who can share information through its forums and discussion groups and may be able to help new expatriates find out everything they need in order to settle into their new home.
