SberBank has simplified the issuance of mortgages to foreigners.  Citizens of any country can apply for a mortgage loan in a bank. This is stated in the bank's message. 

To do this, foreigners need to receive a salary on a bank card and meet the standard requirements for age and work experience. Mortgage borrowers do not have to provide documents on their knowledge of the Russian language, as well as documents on education.

Such programs as "Purchase of ready-made housing", "Purchase of housing under construction", "Construction of a residential building", "Suburban real estate" and "Garage"are available to foreign citizens.

The geography of the program has also expanded. Now a mortgage for foreigners is available to residents of the Volga region. The loan can be issued in the Astrakhan, Volgograd, Orenburg, Penza, Samara, Saratov and Ulyanovsk regions.

Previously, it was possible to issue mortgages to foreign citizens in Moscow, the Moscow region, the Tver, Kaluga, Bryansk, Smolensk and Tula regions. In addition, the list includes such regions as Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Ivanovo, Ryazan, Leningrad, Murmansk, Kaliningrad, Pskov, Novgorod, Vologda and Arkhangelsk regions. Also, such a mortgage loan is available in the city of St. Petersburg, the Arkhangelsk Region, the Republics of Karelia, Komi and the Nenets Autonomous District.
