How To Find a Job in Equatorial Guinea as a Foreigner

Malaba, Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea is a speck of a country located in the middle part of Africa. One of the cool things I like about Equatorial Guinea is that their official language is Spanish. Also, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, Malabo, is not actually located on mainland Africa, but on an island just off the coast known as Bioko Island.

If your wish is to work in Equatorial Guinea, good luck because job opportunities will be VERY HARD to come by. Most opportunities available for expats will involve something dealing with oil. If you are not interested in oil, I suggest finding another country in Africa.

Without further ado, below is a selection of resources for searching for employment opportunities in Equatorial Guinea as a foreigner. As mentioned, landing an opportunity will be difficult, but you might as well give it a shot if you are hooked on this country (not sure why as there is really not all that much to do there, and there are much better countries in Africa).
