While planning your trip to Russia, please check the information on what documents you need for staying in Russia.
To stay in Moscow, you must have following documents:
Please note that your passport should be valid within the whole period of your staying in Russia.
Part A of the migration card should be given to the passport control officer on the state border upon the entrance to the territory of the Russian Federation.
Part B of the migration card should be maintained for the whole duration of stay in the territory of the Russian Federation, and should be given to the passport control officer on the state border upon the exit from the territory of Russia.
The host party (in our case - the Institute) should notify the migrational authority of the Russian Federation on the arrival of a foreign citizen. The foreign citizens take the detachable part of the Notification (see photo) and should have it with them (such as passport and part B of the migration card) anywhere they go. The fact that the foreign citizen has the detachable part of the Notification with the mark of reception, confirms his/her migration registration, and thus it complies with immigration legislation of the Russian Federation.
Please note that the violation of Russian immigration laws is a subject to punishment which may vary from fines to deportation from Russia and entrance ban. Please follow all the rules carefully, follow all migration and visa procedures in time and take all these documents with you wherever you are in Russia.
