Hi everyone. What would a competitive salary for an EFL/ESL teacher in Moscow be at the moment? August 2017

Also, if there's anyone in Moscow teaching at the moment, any inisght would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Have a good day everyone.

Also, for any Americans in Russia at the moment; a question. Is it possible to apply for a Russian Visa without having to go to the Russian Consulate. Can one do this by mail?

Hi,

I have lived and taught in Russia, but have never been to Moscow, so I can't comment on that. As far as an average salary goes, check out the International Job Board on this site, and subscribe to TEFL.com's newsletter to see what jobs are available in Moscow, and what pay rate they are offering (always assume it's the lowest amount stated). Schools centered around business English usually pay more than others.

You can absolutely get a Russian visa by mail, and the application is filled out online. I have done this three times already. There is only one official company that does this: ILS, or "Invisa Logistics Services." They handle all visa purchases between U.S. citizens and Russian Embassies/Consulates. On their website you will find what documents you will need, and how much everything costs. The bad thing is they have made things more pricey than in the past, but many schools will reimburse you for visa costs, as an incentive for working for them under contract. Also be aware that if you go to Russia on a Work Visa you will have to pass a Russian language and culture test at some point.
