Hello Jorge,

Welcome to Expat-Blog..............


Hi Jorge!!
Of course we need to share comments, my biggest concern its about de schools in pointe noire. I've been looking on the web and I saw a few schools like Lycee charle magne, Eximus international school, sacred heart international school and Les pousins. I already ask information in the Lycee and there is a waiting list. If you know about another schools please let me know. By the way Im from Veracruz  :)

My husband just got offered a job in Pointe Noire, and neither of us have even been out of country before. We have 3 young children ages 6,5 and 2. I've read that it's a relatively safe area, just wondering if there are others in the area that might like to start a friendship so we have people we know when we make the big move.

Yes mam, there is a Lady by the name Alix  ([email protected]) a very knowlegdeable, down to earth with her feet firm on the ground. Just tell her that Sylvie and Attie refred you to her.

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to add some information about Italian school in pointe noire, this is a very nice school and from next year (2016-2017) they will provide lessons in English and Italian language, actually it will be bilingual school ( of course with Weekly French lessons too) I recommend you to contact the school if you are interested.


Hi guys it is a safe life in Pointe Noire? I have one contract there but I don't know more details about life in Congo. Thanks!

hello Constantin!
I have been living in Pointe-Noire for about one year now. It's a very cool and nice place. People think strangers are very rich, so you should negociate before buying something. Be close to your consulate. I'm sure you will be pleased here.

Hello guys I'm Henry from Sweden and I just got a job posting in lubumbashi, looking to make friends in advance and also about the security situation over there

Anyone stationed in Pointe Noire let me know

@ Nick Voerman,

This topic is unfortunately quite old and inactive.

I would invite you to create a new thread in the Pointe-Noire forum and to introduce yourself there. It might raise your chances to make new acquaintances very soon.

Thank you,
