As you begin to think about moving to Libya, you need to consider a few very important things. After communicating with a number of families that have recently moved to Libya, you should think about…
The best neighborhood for your family
Choosing a location for your family is not an easy task. We recently wrote a post on the Best 3 Neighborhoods in Tripoli; you may want to check that out. You will want to make sure you find a place that had easy access to supermarkets, schools, and green-space (especially for the kids).
We would recommend that you make a list of the key “needs” for your family before you start looking at different properties.
Where are the schools located?
As you looking to settle in Tripoli, you will want to make sure that you find a suitable school option for your children. There are a number of different types of schools around the city, so make sure that you do your research before coming. There are a few ways to gather information.
1. Contact friends who live in Libya and ask them for recommendations.
2. Read reviews and comments online about the schools.
3. Send the schools a direct email to see what type of custom care and response you get.
4. Join one of the local expat forums to ask for advice.
No matter which school you choose, you will want to think about transportation to and from. With the growing amount of traffic in Tripoli, you will want to choose wisely.
Things to do for families
One of the comments that I hear from families is that there are limited activities for families. Although this might be true compared to some other countries, Tripoli does offer some nice family options. You may want to make sure that you choose your home near the beach or close to one of the lovely local parks.
