Hello: I am considering a job offer from a well reputed organization in Baku and wanted to find out more about the city, its culture, way of life, cost of living etc.. I currently reside in Dubai and have been in Kuwait, KSA, Oman for the last 10 odd years.. How different is Baku from Dubai or Oman for instance?

Dear All,

Hope everyone is fine. I am Hassan and will be arriving in BAKU on Sep 23, 2016. I am from Islamabad - the beautiful capital city of Pakistan :) I will be working for a telecom company of Azerbaijan.

I look forward to meet fellow locals n expats to know more about their countries and to know about the places of get together. I heard language is a problem  in AZ, I would like to know what is the best way to deal with it. What is the rent for  1 or 2 bedroom apartment in a nice location such as near Port Baku Towers.

Looking forward to have pieces of advice and make some friends in Baku :)

Warm wishes to all.
Hassan

yes i am in baku! language is big issue here. As azeri is the primary language while russian is the second language. Very Few people, mostly in office can speak or understand english.

Currency devaluation is sigificant and expectation is that it will cross 1$ = 2 azn while current official rate is 1.63 while bank deal @ 1.70 but no bank will give you dollar , you can just sale a dollar at bank in these days. even in black market dollar rate cross 1.8 azn.

so, people who getting salary in local currency suffer a lot .

now's day getting a work permit is also an issue. it is adviceble to get work permit in advance. if possible fix you salary in dollar.

Are u working in Baku?

Thanks a lot for such a kind advice. I already have the business visa which is valid for 90 days as the company is saying that they will apply for my work permit once I will be at BAKU. i beleive with your recommendation, I will now ask them to provide me a permit before my arrival.

Thanks again. I will be on touch with you. God bless.

Kind Regards,
Hassan
