    Russian Card for Digital Nomad in Asia?

    Hello Everyone!

    Me (Italian) and my girlfriend (Russian) are gonna begin our digital nomad adventure in Asia starting March 2018.

    I've personally opened a N26 account (all for free), as it will allow me to pay with their credit card with no fee at all, 1.7% for withdrawals and I can transfer money for free via bank wire from my Italian bank (that's because N26 is based in Germany, so it's within Europe).

    The point is that in her case she will receive money from Russian clients in RUB to her Sberbank card; I don't think it's a valuable option to use that card for living abroad, so I was wondering if there's something similiar to N26 within Russia.
    She could technically open the account on N26 too, but she'd have to pay a commission to transfer money on it + a conversion fee, so that doesn't look great.

    What's your take on this?


    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Kind regards,

    Alessandro
