Hi everybody, I am close to make an agreement for a job as expat in Noida. The package seems to be reasonable, they offer house plus car with driver and a gross salary which is very closed to what I am used in Europe (Ireland and Spain).

I have a few question which I hope someone can help me with, so I can make final decision when the time comes, considering that we are a couple with a baby about to turn two years old in the next days.

How is the cost of living in Noida / Delhi? We are used to have a nice lifestyle, eating out regularly, travelling, going out, etc, always with our baby (we have never left him with an au pair).

Is there any particular area in Noida that would suit better for expats, although we would also like to mix with locals (I am not sure if the company already has a rented house / flat or we or they will look for a new contract, I need to find this out)?

Any good activities for the boy in the area? We would not like to leave him in a crèche, it would be too much for him now, but we want him to socialise with other kids of his age.

How to manage water pollution? When travelling to some places in Asia, including India, we are always very careful with water, we only drink mineral water (even in Europe) but in some countries like India even to use the ice or wash the teeth we use mineral water to avoid visit to the hospital. Our baby always plays with the water during the bath, etc. Are the apartment prepared in this sense to have filtered water, or I am asking too much.

Visa process, does anyone know how long would take to get it? The company already asked me how fast I could go there. I expect them to arrange the visa but since I am based in Ireland now and they are in Spain, I might need to process myself, not sure yet.

Thanks a lot!!
