Real Estate in Russia

Getting a visa to Russia should be straight-forward. Unfortunately, there is misinformation everywhere. Marcus from Let's Russia will tell you everything you need to know about getting the right visa to Russia.

Healthcare in Russia

The healthcare system in Russia has a poor reputation at best, and, unfortunately, it is true that public healthcare in Russia is not great outside of large cities. There are private clinics around every Russian city and town though that provide relatively good care at affordable prices. There are even state of the art private clinics where you can get care that rivals any Western country.

"Just had an amazing chat with Marcus from Let' He was extremely knowledgeable and informative. As an American, I'm looking to move to Russia on the 3-year tourist visa and he patiently went over all my border-hopping, internet, digital nomad, PCR questions. He even shared a neat way for me to stay long-term without hopping by starting a business that makes 40k a year and hiring myself as a "Highly Qualified Specialist." It blew my mind! Big thanks!!!"
