Migration registration – visa entry

Contact: +7 (843)206-52-89 (ext. 8136)

In order to legally stay on the territory of the Russian Federation all foreign citizens must get a migration registration at the place of stay (residence). It is necessary to submit documents for migration registration (in other words – to obtain registration) within the deadlines established by migration legislation after crossing the border of the Russian Federation.

Migration registration (registration, tear-off part of the form on the arrival of a foreign citizen), which is issued upon arrival in the Russian Federation, as well as its further extension should be carried out at the actual place of stay (residence). If the address of stay (residence) and the address of migration registration (registration) are different, this would be a serious violation of migration legislation. Violation of the terms of application for migration registration and its extension is also a violation of migration legislation.

 Documents need to be submitted for migration registration (registration):

  • at each new entry into the Russian Federation (when a new migration card is issued when crossing the border of the Russian Federation);
  • In case of hospitalization
  • In case of change of place of stay or residence (hostel, hotel, apartment, sanatorium, rest home, etc.).
