Tuberculosis (TB), rabies, food poisoning and tick-borne encephalitis are among the health hazards expatriates who have recently moved to Russia should look out for.
Expatriate healthcare insurance is often invaluable for those who have relocated to a new country and TB is acknowledged as a problem in the country, particularly among people living in crowded and damp accommodation, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Those moving to the country are also advised not to drink tap water, with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) noting bottled water is preferable.
A medical insurance policy is likely to be vital for those heading to the country for any length of time, as although there is an agreement between the UK and Russia that entitles British nationals to free treatment, this is likely to be "limited" according to the FCO.
The office also advises people to ensure all their necessary vaccinations are up to date before heading to the country.
