1. Cost of single room self-contained is around 20,000 cfa to 50,000 cfa / month at average areas. And 50,000 cfa above in Rich neighborhood per month.
Visit : http://m.leportail.ci/colocation/
2. Cost of living is cheap. Food is the cheapest. A standard meal of ivoirian 'tchep' plate is 600 cfa (250 naira). including drink. but expensive meals at big places are still below 1000 naira to 1500. you can buy Atiéké (the ivoirian dish everybody must eat) at as low as 200cfa thats not up to 100naira. Ivorycoast is the 2nd largest producer of Fish in Africa after Morocco.
Transport is cheap. they have different transportation system. Taxi (orange coloured genreal taxi) and other colours depending on the region. Bus sotra (mon bus) you can get any where with sotra bus with 200cfa/60 naira. anywhere! just look for the number of the commune you're going to (you will know the numbers of each commune when you get to Abidjan.

I will be visiting soon too maybe by September by God's grace. I have a friend who lives at Adjame he is from Osun State you will be surprised that 70% of Nigerians living in Abidjan are from Osun State, ranging from Ejigbo the highest Nigerians so far to IWO, EDE, IRAGBERI, OGBOMOSO, OYO, ILORIN few EDO, DELTANS IGBOS and very few Hausas from Nigeria but they are countless Hausas from other countries like Niger, Ghana, Gambia etc. The last time I visited l met with our Ambassador Mrs. IFEOMA AKABOGU she is a very welcoming and friendly ambassador. With 250,000 Naira you are good to go Atleast for a starter if you are planning migration depending on the area you will stay and the kind of business you will love to venture in. You can pm me or the brother above pertaining to business and cost of accommodation of your preferred areas.

Yes. Even Ejigbo People are 80% of Nigerians in Ivorycoast. I am also an Ivoirian from a Nigerian Mother who comes from Ejigbo, Osun State. There is Large Number of Ejigbo people in Treichville, Adjame and Other places. They are now even part of the Government at Basis level. There are even several bordeless Luxurious Buses that take passengers every week (sundays) from Ejigbo, Osun State to W/African countries. They have tge strongest relation with Ivorycoast. They even claim to be Ivoirians. The first set migrated in the late 19th century.Now we are in 21st century.
Igbo People on the other side overtake the Nigerian Bussiness Diaspora in Cote D’Ivoire.

Nairalanders/Nairalandies please am ready to hit the air on the 18th to Abidjan for a weeks tour,so far the cheapest airline i have come across is Egypt Air which almost like a No No due to their recent Bleep ups(plane crash news is the beginning of fear).

|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by shysteve(m): 2:22pm On Jul 08, 2016|
Chai...bros i just called their office here in Accra and their price is also on the high side o(1,900 GHS which is about 161,500 naira)
am seriously considering taking the road adventure there (at least i will save cost and maybe catch some road fun)
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by Ugosample(m): 2:25pm On Jul 08, 2016|
You can use the road.
Use STC. 19000 CFA one way.
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by Nobody: 4:22pm On Jul 08, 2016|
@ugosample,pks where can one get the STC bus?
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by shysteve(m): 4:26pm On Jul 08, 2016|
I just called their customer service, they are located around Kwame Nkrumah Circle and the lady i spoke with said the cost to Abidjan is 70GHS and 9000 CFA.
She also said its advisable to book 2 or 3 days ahead of departure.
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by Ugosample(m): 4:42pm On Jul 08, 2016|
She is right....
Book on time
And enjoy the experience......
I may be flying in too myself soon.

@ugosample,pls I'd like to know how one could live legally there without harassment. Do one obtain a permit or something? If yes,how much would that cost,thanks.
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by Harzontorh: 7:33pm On Jul 09, 2016|
Yeah i am a Nigerian-Ivoirian. Born in Côted’Ivoire, living in abidjan and other states since day 1, holidays in 9ja. Mother from Nigeria. Am an African traveler, So i know very well about both countries. My great article on my travel story through west africa is still under construction.
So back to your question, since Ivorycoast is a french-speaking country, the chances of you getting a job in that field is low if you dont have any certificate in french. so i advice you to enroll your self into a good french class when you get to Abidjan and go for DELF exam. ( Diplome etude en langue française ) or you should do A Level Bac in french at alliance français.
You can still get a job, if the company olis desperate in employment and recruitment or probably with luck.

For sure there are so many International English schools. and the fees are lesser compare to Nigeria. English schools in Abidjan are established by Nigerian communities and Ghanaians in Ivorycoast, they are very standard and good. but the english school in regions like san pedro, daloa and bouaké (places outside abidjan) are not as standard as the ones in Abidjan.
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by Harzontorh: 7:52pm On Jul 09, 2016|
it depends. if you're going for a "residence". a studio in a residence is paid with no advanced payment. example is: You rent for 2 months and pay for the 2 months. and thats all. only just small money for other stuffs like electricity (which some dont collect). the house is readily furnitured and ready to stay in.
While place like 'colocation' of which you are the one to buy the house acessories, then there might be advance payment. like paying some months in advance. I have never heard anyone paying 1 year advance .. unless if you willingly do that your self.
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by Ugosample(m): 8:26pm On Jul 09, 2016|
Salut Mon Frère
Tu es alle au Burkina avant?
Ça me rend très heureux que tu donnes conseiller ici...
C'est très bien.. Je voudrais demander quelque chose..
Finalement, j'aime bien Abidjan.
|Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by shysteve(m): 9:40pm On Jul 09, 2016|
Very insightful.....can you recommend a good french school,will be going there soon to see things for myself before making up my mind if i should relocate finally or stay back in accra.
