What to expect when moving to Benin

Hello everyone,

Is there anything you wish you had known before moving to Benin? For example, transportation, internet speeds, types of housing, aspects of the culture or social life.

In your opinion, what's the most important thing to know about Benin?

When would you recommend someone should begin planning their move to Benin?

What were the most helpful ways you found to get organised? For example, did you use a checklist, were there any particularly useful websites or apps?

What advice would you give to future expats preparing to move to Benin?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Hi Priscilla,

I plan on moving to Cotonou and want to find out more about Benin on the whole.
Is there anything anyone can tell me about the transportation, internet speeds, types of housing, available jobs, etc
