In most cases a student visa can be extended for the entire study period.
Student visas can be renewed in Kazan provided that:
- The student’s passport will not expire before the new visa’s expiration date,
- The student plans to continue the affiliation with KFU (that is to sign an agreement to participate in one of KFU’s programs)
- The visa initially used to enter the Russian Federation permits renewal
Kazan Federal University cannot be held responsible for the problems you might face after your arrival in Russia, if you have neglected the instructions given above.
As the process to get the new multi-entry visa takes at least two weeks, we strongly recommend to you to arrive to Russia no less than 20 days prior to the expiry of your one-entry student visa
