Welcome to the Expat Russia Chapter!

Privet and a warm welcome to InterNations Russia! Our network for expats in Russia is tailored to your particular needs and helps you with moving to and settling in Russia. Relocating overseas to a foreign country is adventurous and also challenging now and then. For expatriates Russia a lot of questions come up such as: ʺHow good is the health care system in Russia and do I need special vaccinations?ʺ, ʺIn which district should we live when moving to Saint Petersburg?ʺ or ʺHow about the overall safety in Moscow?ʺ And many more questions…

InterNations aims to support you, as an expatriate, in getting to know the Russia expat community and discovering the Russian way of life in all its facets, from having the traditional borscht to celebrating Den narodnogo edinstva (Unity Day).

Embark on Russia Expats Life

From Lake Baikal to the Virgin Komi Forests of the Urals, Russia has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the sizable expat Russia community is mainly attracted by its economic opportunities, e.g. in the petro sector, and the urban development in Moscow and Yekaterinburg. Expat living in Russia surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
