Hello Roshan.

Welcome to Expat.com!

Hope other members will soon advise you.

Concerning the accommodation, you can browse through the housing in Bratislava section and post an advert as well. It may help.

Thank you,

Hi,

In answer to your question, obviously it's relative to your standard of living now, but yes it's a good salary.
A 1 bedroom flat in an average area not far from the centre will cost about 500euro. A meal costs about 5euro for a set lunch menu.

If you need any help let me know, I have some good contacts.

Hi vstar,

784eur per month is not great, but it's an 'okay' salary for Bratislava. They might deduct 45% of your food vouchers (about 25 eur per month).

You can find a decent room in a shared flat for 200-250 per month, all bills included. The bus pass 25 eur for 30 days. Monthly expenses (food, cleaning products, etc.) are about 200eur or less per month (for an average living standard, as you mentioned).  The rest will be your pocket money for going out, shopping (which is pretty expensive in Bratislava), hobbies, travels, etc. :)

You might want to check the immigration costs though. EU nationals don't have to spend much to get the residence permit, but I know nothing about the procedures for non-EU nationals.

Hope this helps.

Good luck

Sabina
