Meet Our Team
Imigrata was founded by immigrants who went through the tedious perils of immigration before modern Internet tools were commonly available. Today we are fortunate to develop and offer tools & products to make immigration affordable to everyone.
  • Alex Khodorkovsky
    Founder & CEO
    Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, Alex became an immigrant at the age of 15, when he moved to Atlanta, USA.

    Although he hates the expression "a serial entrepreneur", he certainly qualifies to be so called. He founded over a dozen companies in various industries: IT, travel, entertainment, HoReCa, publishing.

    Most of Alex's projects were pioneers in their fields: the first Russian transit hotel, the first restaurant employing all identical-twin staff, the first major GLBTQ social dating network for CIS countries, the first Jewish & Masonic cocktail bar, and many other firsts.

    Alex is currently going through his second immigration — this time to Portugal. He believes that immigration is a new start that most people need in their lives.
  • Pavel Smirnov
    Director of Operations
    Pavel is a seasoned nomad and an immigration specialist since 2020.

    Before he became a pro in immigration to Europe, i.e. startup visas, entrepreneur, global talent and golden visa programs, he was actually an orientalist. He is just as versed in the history and how different ancient temples are built as he is in digital nomad visa programs.

    He has lived in Poland, the Netherlands, Armenia and Tunisia outside of his former home country Russia.

    He currently works out of a remote office in Montenegro.
  • Polina Ukhanova

    Polina's area of expertise @ Imigrata is communications, social media and immigration policy research.

  • Vlad Konovalov
    Vlad invests his resources and expertise in the fields of his personal interests that are related to improving people's lives: HR-tech, sport apps and health-tech projects. Although not yet an immigrant himself, Vlad is a real world nomad, spending a good chunk of his time in Bali, surfing the Indonesian waves.

    Vlad is responsible for technological solutions, drawing up technical requirements, selecting vendors and partners and is basically in charge of the "tech" part in our Legaltech startup.

    The past year Vlad has spent trying out nomad life in at least a half-dozen of East-Asian countries and he has the best looking Instagram out of all of us.
  • Ely Gorodetsky
    Head of Portugal visa department
    Ely studied to be a doctor, but changed his mind and left medical school for business. For more than 8 years he has been developing his own project related to tourism and corporate event planning.

    His personal travel experiences prompted him to decide to immigrate. In 2021 he moved to Portugal, sucessuflly prepared his D7 program case on his own and received his Portuguese resident card later.

    After relocation, Ilya realized just how much immigration can change a person's life for the better, and decided that he wanted to help others in this important process. He left tourism for immigration and now solves the most complex immigration cases of our clients in Portugal.
  • Natalia Nechiporenko
    Consultant and case manager for Portuguese and German programs
    Natalia has been an immigrant since childhood. She moved to Moscow from Kyiv as a teenager and throughout her subsequent life in Russia she argued that immigrants were no worse than other citizens, despite the resistance of the system.
    In Moscow, Natalya worked as a human rights lawyer with immigrants, helping them with the most difficult issues of protection against detentions and deportation. Her clients included both businessmen on the Interpol list and representatives of vulnerable groups fleeing from persecution.

    Re-immigration has never been a necessary goal. However, thanks to the experience gained, in March 2022 Natalya moved her family members, including two cats, and began her new life in Germany. Today  Natalya is happy with life in Europe and, wondering why she didn’t move earlier, is considering various new countries for moving to.
