5 Popular U.S. Cities for Ping Express Users

Whether you’re in the nation’s capital, in Texas, or in the Midwest hub of Chicago, it can be comforting to know that you’re among a large (and growing!) group of expatriates from Nigeria who have chosen to live and work in the United States.

While expats from Nigeria can be found in every major city across the country, there are several cities that seem to attract more Nigerians than others. Here are five of the most popular cities for Nigeria residents, as determined by money transfer activity between the U.S. and Nigeria:

New York

New York City, the “Big Apple”, is a famously popular place for expatriates from every country around the world. Walking down the street, you are likely to hear many different spoken languages every day. With well-known landmarks like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and the Brooklyn Bridge, many expats have seen images of New York City in movies and television shows for years. It’s exciting to be part of the hustle and bustle of life in such a vibrant city.


Dallas, TX is another popular location for expatriates. With typically warm and sunny weather, the winters are mild. Dallas neighborhoods are also generally diverse, with easy-to-navigate and reliable public transportation making it simple to get from point A to point B. This Lone Star State city is home for several Fortune 500 companies, providing ample employment opportunities.

Washington, D.C.

The nation’s capital is well known for its landmarks, and is popular with expatriates and tourists alike. It can be exciting to live and work in the heart of the U.S. government machine. With plenty of parks and green space, the city has an open, welcoming feel for those who have chosen to make the U.S. their home.


Houston, TX boasts a very diverse population and is popular with expats who enjoy warmer winters, and a thriving theater and music scene. The greater Houston metropolitan area has a population of more than six million people, making it one of the largest major metro areas in the U.S.


The vibrant city of Chicago, located in the upper Midwest of the U.S., has a lot to offer expats. With a thriving performing arts community, museums, parks, dining and shopping, it’s no wonder that the city is so popular with expatriates. With a large multicultural population, you’ll find a wide array of dining and entertainment with a distinctly international feel.
