Expats in Russia experience difficulty enrolling their children in local schools, but find it easy to integrate into the community, it has been claimed.
Such are the findings of the latest HSBC Expat Experience survey, which offers an extensive insight into what life is like for expats living all over the world.
While Canada, Australia and Thailand all fared well in the survey, Russia lost out in areas such as access to healthcare, schools and local amenities and utilities. Such figures may encourage potential emigres to check their expat health insurance cover before leaving the country.
The country was placed two points from bottom in the 26-country league table in overall quality of life, although it did score highly in terms of community integration and offering a friendly environment for expats.
Although the country languished in this latest report, the previously published HSBC Expat Economics survey placed Russia first overall, with the country scoring highly in increased savings, luxuries, income and disposable income.
Commenting on the latest report, Alan Smith, head of international wealth management at HSBC Bank International, said it appears many expats are engaged in a trade-off between income and quality of life when choosing where to live abroad.
