We asked expats in Russia what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Before retiring in Russia, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language and culture. It is also important to research the cost of living in the area they plan to retire in, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Additionally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits to live and work in Russia. Finally, it is important to understand the local laws and regulations, as well as the tax system, to ensure a smooth transition into retirement," remarked another expat who made the move to Russia.

"Yes, Raiffeisen Foreign currency accounts offered including Dollars, Euro, Sterling. No charge for transferring funds between accounts when using internet banking services. Full internet banking service available," explained one expat living in Moscow, Russia.
