New members of the Benin forum, introduce yourselves here - 2022

Hi all,

Newbie on the Benin forum? Don't know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country,
or to tell us more on your expat projects in Benin if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!



I'm Moji, interested in relocating with my family to Benin Republic.

I'm a Corporate Lawyer and only fluent in English with little knowledge of French language.

I have heard a lot of pleasant things about Benin Republic; however, I've never been there, don't know anywhere, don't know anyone and certainly do not know how to navigate my way around.

I would like to know the best and safest place to live, conducive for a family with growing children.

I would like to know areas to avoid and the crime rates in Benin Republic.

Which is the best option? To buy a property or build to one's own taste?

Thank you for this opportunity.
