Living in Ivory Coast

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Mar 14, 2023

Summary: People describe life in Ivory Coast as vibrant and diverse. Expats love the warm climate, friendly people, and the abundance of natural beauty. The average cost of living for an expat is around $1,000 per month. This includes rent, food, transportation, and entertainment. The approximate population of Ivory Coast is 24.7 million people. The largest cities in Ivory Coast are Abidjan, Bouaké, Daloa, Yamoussoukro, and San-Pédro. The cons of living in Ivory Coast include a lack of infrastructure, high crime rates, and a lack of access to quality healthcare. Additionally, the cost of living can be high for expats, and the language barrier can be difficult to overcome.

What do I need to know about living in Ivory Coast?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Ivory Coast, they said:

"Before retiring in Ivory Coast, expats should research the cost of living in the country and the availability of healthcare services. It is also important to familiarize oneself with the local culture and customs, as well as the language. Expats should also consider the safety and security situation in the country, and make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before arriving. Additionally, expats should research the availability of banking and financial services, as well as the tax implications of living in Ivory Coast," remarked one expat who made the move to Ivory Coast.
