What do I need to know before moving to Azerbaijan?

Answer this Question

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

"Azerbaijan is a culturally diverse country with a rich history and a unique language. Expats should be aware that the official language is Azerbaijani, although Russian is widely spoken. Expats should also be aware that the country is predominantly Muslim, and that religious customs and traditions should be respected. Additionally, expats should be aware that the cost of living in Azerbaijan is relatively low, and that the country offers a wide range of leisure activities and attractions. Finally, expats should be aware that the country has a temperate climate, with hot summers and cold winters," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Azerbaijan.

"Check out traffic patterns before you lease during rush hour -- it can take 2 hours to drive 5 kilometers at rush hour on a Friday evening when the wedding palaces are having their parties -- it isn't even possible to park and walk home because the traffic is so dysfunctional," commented one expat who made the move to Baku, Azerbaijan.
