What do I need to know before moving to Almaty?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Almaty, they said...

"Almaty is the largest city in Kazakhstan and is known for its vibrant culture and stunning natural beauty. Expats should be aware that the official language of Kazakhstan is Kazakh, although Russian is widely spoken. Expats should also be aware that the cost of living in Almaty is relatively high, and that the city is prone to earthquakes. It is important to research the local laws and regulations before moving to Almaty, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Additionally, expats should be aware that the climate in Almaty is continental, with hot summers and cold winters," said another expat in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
