Visa Registration

Russian law requires visitors to register their Russian visas within 3 business days of their arrival. Visa registration is necessary for every foreign citizen entering Russian Federation.

The registration can be done:

  • in a hotel or a hostel where you are going to stay
  • by the owner of the apartment if you are staying in a private apartment with friends or a family
  • by the company issued your visa invitation

When you stay in a hotel or hostel, your Russian visa registration would be done either at no additional charge or at some administration fee (about 5 Euro) when you check in.
If you are staying in private accommodation you have to make your Russian visa registration yourself – and this is the most hellish procedure! You and the apartment owner have to visit the OVIR office (the Federal Migration Service Department) and spend several hours in the queue. We advise you to call some law firm or our office and ask to make the Russian visa registration for you – otherwise you will feel the Russian bureaucracy at its worst!
