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…

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Russia, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from live in Saudi Arabia to living in Germany.

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

Looking for so much information on working and living in Russia is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time.
