Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Nigeria

Situated on the Gulf of Guinea, Nigeria is a beautifully natural country famous for its wildlife reserves and safaris. There's a real mix of experiences here, from the rare beauty of Nigeria's national parks, such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park, to Nigeria's modern, highly-populated cities that are growing rapidly, such as Abuja and Lagos. In 2014, Nigeria emerged as Africa's largest economy, with growth in areas such as agriculture and telecommunications services. The Nigerian government has also been working to improve the infrastructure and power supply problems in the country, and in making living and working conditions better for citizens and expatriates alike. The mining and oil sectors had always been the largest employers of expats in Nigeria, and the two major cities, the capital Abuja and commercial center Lagos, are popular places for expats who are working and living in Nigeria. Reports of high crime can put expats off from making the move, but in reality many experience friendly locals, an exciting culture, and a unique way of life in Nigeria.

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

Find New Friends Even before You Start Your Life in Nigeria

As a member of InterNations, you can feel completely safe when interacting with other like-minded expatriates both online and offline. At InterNations, we ensure every user follows our guiding principles and “netiquette”, and every member is part of the network by approval only. This means you can feel confident in connecting with other InterNations members in person when you arrive in Nigeria. From the exiting Outdoor & Adventures Group in Abuja to the Crazy About Movies Group in Lagos, there is so much going on that your social life will be in full swing before you know it. Simply join InterNations and check out your local groups and events. Continuing a hobby you had at home or starting something new is also a great way to ensure your relocation is a success. So get ready to make InterNations a part of your new chapter in Nigeria!
