Particular circumstances of migration registration
International students and trainees are obliged to apply for migration registration in the Department of Migration Control and Visa Support each time when they:
• Cross the border, i.e. leave and enter the Russian Federation and receive new migration cards
Foreign citizens and stateless persons should keep in mind that every time the cross the border, their previous registration becomes invalid.
• Stay in a hospital / hotel / hostel
In this case, the host party is the administration of the hospital / hotel / hostel that within 24 hours initiates the procedure of migration registration for foreign citizens. Foreign citizens and stateless persons have to take tear-off registration cards filled in by the administration of the host institution.
• Visit other cities of the Russian Federation (moving throughout the Russian Federation and staying in another city for more than 7 days)
If international students or trainees apply for migration registration in other cities of the Russian Federation, they have to take tear-off registration cards from these cities.
• Change the place of stay (moving from one residence hall to another, from a residence hall to a flat, from one flat to another)
