Make your expat project in Benin successful

Located in West Africa, Benin can be the ideal destination if you want to live an African expat adventure. Mastering French is a major asset for expatriates wishing to settle here. Cotonou is the most popular expat city in the country.

To strengthen its economy, Benin tries to attract more foreign investments. The country will then be able to offer more job opportunities to expatriates.
