What do I need to know before moving to Moscow?

Answer this Question

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

"Do not come here if you don't speak Russian. Expect to robbed and ripped off, so don't complain when it happens. You must make a lot of contacts with locals to avoid this. This is not like America. There are no "bad neighborhoods"," remarked another expat in Moscow, Russia.

"Expats should be aware that Moscow is a large and bustling city with a unique culture and language. It is important to research the city and its customs before moving to ensure a smooth transition. Expats should also be aware that the cost of living in Moscow is high, and it is important to budget accordingly. Additionally, it is important to obtain a visa before moving to Moscow, as well as to register with the local authorities upon arrival. Finally, expats should be aware that the winter months in Moscow can be very cold and snowy, and should plan accordingly," said a member in Moscow, Russia.
