Are you preparing for living and working in Russia? Or are you already an expat and have recently relocated to Moscow, Yekaterinburg or some other international Russian city?
The expat relocation to Russia is definitely an exciting international opportunity and cross-cultural adventure: Visiting the landscape such as the "Venice in the north", getting to know how Russian folks celebrate Den narodnogo edinstva (Unity Day), or acquiring a taste for Russia’s popular dishes like borscht…
Relocating to and living in Russia necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Russian expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Russia: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Russian income tax law?ʺ, ʺCan anyone recommend a good private fitness centre in Moscow? How much does membership usually cost?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Moscow?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Russian residence permit for my wife?ʺ
