The wait is finally over!
There is no need to quarantine on your visit to Russia or the Ukraine from the UK, or most other countries.
For those in the UK at the moment, there is still a need for a PCR test 72 hours before you travel there.
As for returning to the UK, fully vaccinated travellers arriving from Non-Red list countries will no longer have to quarantine or take a PCR or lateral flow test before they return, although will still have to take a PCR test two days after arrival. But this is due to change to a much cheaper test later this month.
Russia and Ukraine is currently on the UK' Non-Red list.
Each country has different rules but travelling has become easier now with less restrictions and of course less additional costs.
Now is the time to dust off your travelling shoes, and book your next trip with us. We are on hand to help you every step of the way, including finding the cheapest testing providers, (if needed) and help with 'Passenger Locator Forms'.
For any enquires about possible travel to Russia or Ukraine and what if any restrictions there are based on your home country, please contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some good news at last! We have been working hard all this time in spite of the current situation and ... Voila! The first personal meeting after a 7-month break has taken place in the great city of Istambul, Turkey. You're welcome to read the testimonial and take a step with us too!
"I took a trip on the 25th of October 2020 to Turkey Istanbul to meet B. - a beautiful girl from Ukraine. All was organised well and secure, no problems to use this opportunity to meet each other as an option in the present situation with CV.
We spent a lovely 5 days. It was a very good opportunity to know each other face to face. We explored the city together each day, we took unforgettable pictures and selfies. I can't forget one night we went for a walk at midnight listening to some songs from my mobile sharing one headsets, and we danced in the street. We laughed a lot. Now when i see the photos of our trip I remember that moment and it makes me smile. "

Our latest Romantic Group Tour was a great success with 18 people in attendance. Everyone agreed that they enjoyed the weekend and some great friendships have developed and who knows where that could lead. On Friday after everyone had arrived, we had some relaxing time in the pool and spa before our welcome meeting with champagne and chocolates and a fun ice breaking game. In the evening we had a great dinner in the hotel' Regatta restaurant and everyone agreed that the food was great and the company was enchanting.
Saturday was a fun packed and inclusive day starting with some more pool time and then breakfast. We then had a couple of hours having laughs in one of the meeting rooms with games and a Russian English masterclass. After lunch we then had our cultural time with a walking tour of the Old Town followed by some shopping and exploring in groups and couples. The day was topped off by a typical evening in 'Hells Hunt' (Estonian pub.).
Sunday was a lazy day. After breakfast we all met together and all had the chance to exchange contact details and reflect on a great couple of days. We were sad to see everyone leave and feel sure that we will see them again sometime in the future.
All in all it was another great event, the weather was good, the activities were fun, and the members of our group were outstanding.

We are in the process of finalising our next Tallinn Group Tour in September 2019. We are staying in a romantic resort hotel, 5 minutes drive from the centre of Tallinn in Estonia. The hotel is located in a pine-tree forest on the Baltic seashore, has great views, a big yachting complex nearby, fresh air, a spa and other relaxing procedures are offered.
And, which is more important - great interesting international company!
The goal of our trip is to give a chance for people to meet and spend time in person, enjoy new acquaintances, have some fun and maybe save years of unsuccessful dating.There will be girls and ladies from our agency, our friends and good acquaintances, who are all professional, interesting and fun to be around.
Check out all our reviews for last years Tallinn Group Tour.
One more office has started work in the heart of Russia - in Novosibirsk!
Novosibirsk is a city in Siberia with a population of more than 1.511 million people where about 60% are females!
The Trans-Siberian Railway fuels much of the city growth. The city is famous for it's Universities and cultural life, as well as developed industry. Lots to see and visit! Many gorgeous ladies to meet!
Our latest group Tallinn Tour was another great success. We all enjoyed our time together spending the whole week-end in such spectacular company. There were 17 people in our group altogether – 10 ladies and 7 men.
All the girls and ladies came from St. Petersburg (Russia) while the gents came from the UK, - (London, Harrogate, Northampton), Belgium and Luxembourg.
We must say that this time we had a young and very cheerful group, most of the girls were aged between 28-38 years old and were very charming, entertaining, amusing and fun.

Our Tallinn tour in March was a great success, there were 16 people in our group altogether – 11 ladies and 5 men. The ladies came from St. Petersburg, Omsk and London. Gents came from the UK, Japan and Luxembourg.
We spent 3 days in Tallinn and the fun started on Friday the 16th March when we travelled from St. Petersburg on a comfortable coach. All our transfers were organised beforehand, although three of our gents had already arrived at the hotel. Pirita Spa has a perfect location in a quiet pine tree forest area, 10 minutes drive from the Centre of Tallinn. Some of the group had upgraded their rooms to a sea view and never regretted it – the view to the Gulf of Tallinn is really eye-catching!
After checking in, the entire group met together in one of the conference rooms of the hotel. We had welcoming champagne and soft drinks. We introduced all the members of our group and went through our itinerary once again.
At 8 pm, we all met in the Regatta sea view restaurant for dinner. We had a nice relaxing time with lots of chatting, eating and drinking from the bar.
However, the night had only started! The most active members of our group went into Tallinn Old Town, to a dance club and enjoyed themselves until well after midnight. Nightlife in Tallinn shouldn’t be missed definitely!
In spite of the late night, practically all the group came to the gym for a yoga class on Saturday morning which was followed by a delicious breakfast in the restaurant.
Next was our English-Russian fun master class. We taught our English speaking gents some Russian phrases. Now they know how to break the ice in conversation with Russian ladies, make compliments and even ask for their phone number in a nice way. Compliments were not forgotten as well.
In the afternoon we had an English language excursion in the Old Town with our guide Roman. Roman was very enthusiastic and obviously had lots of things to share with us. If only the weather was warmer!
After the tour, we were all in need of something to warm us up a little! Some of the group just stayed in the local pub having hot wine (delicious thing to have in a cold weather!), and some went to a Georgian restaurant and warmed up with a real Georgian wine recommended by Tamara, who comes from this region. (She knows everything about good wines). It was an experience for our Japanese and French guys!
The evening followed with a visit to an Irish pub, - ‘The Dubliner’ where we had a big table reserved for all of us. We enjoyed nice pub food for a very reasonable price and more than 200 kinds of genuine beers on the menu. We didn’t realize it but because it was St. Patrick’s day, there was live music at the pub which just happened to be the same date as our trip – what else could you ask for on a Saturday night out!
But… our guys and girls seemed not to need sleep – most finished the night dancing again in another of the numerous Tallinn Night Clubs! Good for them!
Sunday was the day to say goodbye to each other. We all gathered in the lobby, exchanged phone numbers and contacts, lots of kisses, saying goodbye and promises to see each other again!
Some of us had a late checkout (which is not a problem with the hotel) and we went to relax in the hotel’ Spa Center – we enjoyed the swimming pool, Finnish sauna and Turkish hammam. It seems our guys from Japan and France experienced this for the first time in their lives and it was my pleasure to guide them through the procedure. Too hot, but fun!
We must thank everyone for the lovely time we spent together – all and everyone was real fun to be around, we learned a lot from each other and enjoyed the time and the company. That was the aim of our trip and we hope we achieved what we wished and we will all keep warm memories of the time together.

Our latest wedding took place in Saint Petersburg on the 3rd October, Our esteemed client from the south of England travelled with his family for the ceremony which our Director - Natasha attended.

We are in the process of production of a new German language version of the website which will help those from Germany access our services much more easily. (You may have noticed the 'German flag' at the top of the page and wondered why it doesn't do anything)..... We are hoping that it will be up and running by the end of the month. Anna is our new partner in Germany and she has been working hard on the page text and many other aspects of the new site. Once the site is up and running we will be able to put a face to the name so watch this space.....
We have been improving the website over the last couple of months and now the new look site is up and running. We are very pleased with the new style and layout and hope all of our male and female clients agree. We would like to thank Vladimir and Svetlana at Openstart in St. Petersburg and a special thanks to Pavel for his tireless efforts and putting up with our constant changes.......
R from Yorkshire has his first tour to St. Petersburg.
Natasha and I welcomed him here in St. Petersburg yesterday. He is having a lovely time here and the weather is fantastic. He is meeting 5 ladies over the course of the next few days and enjoying some good food, good wine and great company.
Natasha has been the Director of HCM - Russia for many years. With all her hard work and little time for relaxing we decided to celebrate in style here in St. Petersburg so we reserved a table at "Jamie's Italian" in Konushanaya Street. The weather was great, the atmosphere was fantastic and the food was what you would expect in a Jamie Oliver restaurant. We had a great night. Happy Birthday Natasha!

"Dear Julia and HCM team,.........I would like to thank you for the great service provided when I was in Dnepropetrovsk. I had great time meeting the girls. People are so friendly in Dnepropetrovsk. So, for any guy out there, looking for love I’d recommend using the service of HCM.......This was my first time in DNK, but I will definitely visit it again. I indeed met great people! Once again, than you Julia and Polina, a very professional and enjoyable service!"
Eric from London
Hearty congratulations to our dear S. - (a lady from Kharkov) and O. - ( a gentleman from Norway) who celebrated their first wedding anniversary last Sunday!
"To anyone thinking of going to Riga the advice is in one word : GO!
Mark and Natasha arrange everything, from airport parking, flight, meet and greet at Riga airport, hotel and of course introductions in Latvia to some amazing ladies. And remember no visa required and the currency is the Euro.
I am just over seventy and thought, little hope. How wrong I was! Their utterly superb agent there is the lovely Alyona who looks after everything, advice, introductions, bars and restaurants (the old town is fantastic) even sightseeing if required. She also actually printed for me my boarding pass in the hotel for the return.
I cannot recommend 'Happy Couple' highly enough for their personal service. Every client is a friend to them. Just go for it."
A Dorset Gentleman, 23.11.2015
We are happy to announce that our lady-client in her late 40's from Kharkov (the Ukraine) and a gentleman from Oslo (Norway) in his early 60's were happily married on the 17th April, 2015 in Kharkov. We wish them all the happiness!
It's the third marriage with our agency since the beginning of 2015 and we are very proud and happy to share our success!
"Hello, dear Natasha and Mark! We are forwarding our wedding photos to you but just for your personal looks at them. We are sorry, but we would like to keep them confidential, private and out of public. We find it right because it's our private and personal life and memories, we put too much work in this relationship and value it a lot....... Thank you again......Best regards,"
S. and O.
"Riga in Latvia may not be your first choice to be the place of dreams but boy am I glad I went there with 'Happy Couple Match'. It was all absolutely effortless. Just over two hours flight, no visa and Euro currency. All professionally arranged by Mark in England and he was always available for any flight or hotel query which was quickly sorted.
The lovely Alona met me at the airport and after a twenty minute drive into the city centre saw me into my beautiful Raddison Blu hotel. Almost everyone speaks excellent English."
Our client from the UK has just returned from his trip to St.Petersburg and kindly shared these lines. We will be very glad if they help those who are sceptical and hesitant to travel to change their mind and take the opportunity to change their life
"My trip to St Petersburg was one of the best experiences I've had! Nightlife was vibrant, the people were friendly and the service was outstanding! Thanks to Natasha and Mark I also had the chance to meet the love of my life."
Nicholas from West Yorkshire, the UK.
We are happy to inform our clients about one more couple matched - a girl from St. Petersburg and a man from Luxembourg. in thier 30s - have finally decided to be together after 2 years of communication!
We wish them all the happiness!
"Hello Natasha, ..........Nearly 2 years ago I meet Irina by your agency and fews weeks after this first meeting we started a relation. It is been several month I wanted to write you, but it is better late than never...So this is just to thanks you for all your great job. And specialy my gratitude for your advices, as it was you who suggested me to meet her. I wish you the best for the future."
The year has just started and we already have another happy couple matched! Our hearty congratulations to Galina and Francois, who got married on the 17th January 2015. We wish them both loads of happiness and lots of love!

We are happy to begin the New Year with the announcement of a wedding of our lady from St. Petersburg in her 40's and a gentleman from Cholet (France) in his early 50's. The wedding will take place on January, 17th in France. We wish this beautiful loving couple all the love and happiness and hope that you join to our hearty congratulations.
We are having that great time of year when we make New Year’s resolutions!
We all wish to start with new ideas, to change something in our live and make it happier and brighter. It can be creating new ventures ahead, new job, an unforgettable holiday or looking for someone special. During Christmas and New Year festivities, online dating is on the up with people surfing through the internet in search of the person of their dreams.
Our HappyCoupleMatch Agency is having many enquiries from people who do not want to try the internet due to not trusting it and want to meet someone who is genuine and the photograph match their description. We meet our clients personally and talk to them and give them the encouragement to step ahead with their lives.
Who knows, 2015 could be the year of great changes in your life!
We have just heard great news from another 'Happy-Couple" - One of our VIP members from Devon, the UK and a Russian lady living in France have made the great decision to get married in February 2015. .........and what delighted our St. Petersburg office more than anything is that they have not only invited us to the wedding but have also asked us to arrange their wedding ceremony in our fantastic city!
It will be our pleasure, we must assure you, dear friends! We send them our hearty congratulations!
I have just returned from my second trip to St. Petersburg and again it was superb. Everything handled so smoothly by Mark and Natasha, from flights, visa, hotel, transfers, all without hassle. For those guys a little hesitant I can assure you that you will not regret going. Not only did I meet some wonderful ladies but included some fascinating sightseeing and went to some lovely bars and restaurants. My hotel was in an old palace and smack bang centre. On top of all that there is a great rate of exchange at present. The total cost was not much different from a good holiday anywhere. Do not be put off by age either. I am 70 and met some gorgeous ladies from mid forties! The only things to remember are to have exemplary manners and dress fairly smartly to compliment the ladies as they will undoubtedly appreciate it!
You will be sorry if you do not take the plunge, so go for it!
An average guy from Dorset.
We have just heard from another happy couple who have thanked us for helping them find happiness in a new relationship. The lady from the Ukraine aged in her late 40′s had a difficult time after being widowed. The gentleman in his late 50’s is from Norway. They met each other for the first time in the lady’s home town. The meeting was planned to last for a week. But, it turned out that they haven’t separated from each other for more than a few days since then.
They are currently staying in the Ukraine or Norway or touring Europe.......We wish them all the happiness in the world!"Hello Natalia,......We are sending this mail from Budapest, where we spent great week in the Danubius Thermal Hotel (it was such good relaxation) and for this time we rent nice and furnished one bedroom apartment very central located. Europeans call Hungary "Meka for food", and the city food market is full of all kind of foot and fruits, cafe and restaurants are everywhere, portions are very big and food are tasty and very delicious. The weather was good, up to 20 degrees, we got the last good week, today is rain and getting colder. We will forward photo later. … Budapest have a pleasant and friendly atmosphere and we were very happy here...... we may say that Hungarian wine out of any comments!! So good!! Hello to Mark, have a nice day and we will talk later".
O. and S.
We have had good news already this week, that one of our ladies (in her mid-forties, from St.Petersburg,) who was actively looking for the right man, has met him in Bordeaux France!
The gentleman is a businessman in his early fifties, divorced and looking to start a new family. We are happy that this is the start of a wonderful life together and wish them every happiness ahead.
When clients come to us looking for something specific to change their lives, we cannot always promise that we can, but we do promise to pull out all the stops to make something special happen and once again in this particular case it did. A couple who had both been previously married and both with independant children.
We wish them well in this start of a new page in their live. It just goes to show that it's never is too late and with many people embarking on second relationships later in life, it has almost become the norm.
Here is a copy of the letter from Natalia who moved from St. Petersburg to Finland which was received in our office last week informing us of her wedding. We have reproduced it in both languages for the benefit of all our members.
Наталья здравствуйте,....жизнь у меня сложилась с финном... Сейчас живу в Финляндии. С прошлой недели посещаю курсы финского языка, которые продлятся год и три месяца. Если нужна будет небольшая помощь с финским языком обращайтесь. Это будет хорошей тренировкой для меня...... Спасибо вам . Удачи вам в делах и всего хорошего.
Hello, Natalia,....I’m married to a Finnish man. Now I’m living in Finland. Since last week I’m visiting Finnish language courses. If somebody needs help with the Finnish language I’m ready to help! It will be good practice for me. Thank you. Good luck in your business and all the best.
We have just heard from a couple who got engaged in September and about to wed in December. The gentleman is divorced and in his mid 50′s (UK) and the lady is in late 40’s (Russian living in France). They are both very excited, planning their big day first in St.Petersburg, Russia and then in England. They thanked HappyCoupleMatch Introduction Agency saying that they would never have met in a real world and they are both so happy.
We wish them a lifetime of happiness together.
