Get Tips and Info on Life in Russia from South African Expats

Being an expat in Russia means much more than packing your belongings and taking care of paperwork. Keeping in touch with your South African compatriots is a big part of the expat experience and can help you understand the Russian people and their culture better. With InterNations, meeting other South Africans in Russia is a breeze, no matter if you are in Yekaterinburg, Moscow, Saint Petersburg or any other expat magnet across the country. Just take our network of South Africans in Moscow, for example.

If you are in the mood to speak your mother tongue again, to learn about the best spots to shop for South African food, or to discuss your favorite sports team’s latest match, join the South African InterNations Community:

  • In our huge expat network, you can easily find like-minded expatriates from South Africa.
  • Our Russia Expat Forums are a great place to share experiences and advice – for example how to find a nanny speaking your language or where to get bobotie in Moscow...
  • The InterNations Places database for Russia helps you find institutions like the nearest South African embassy.

From the "Third Rome" to the "Venice in the north", we’ll get you in touch with helpful and friendly South African expats in Russia.
