What is a Russia residence permit?

Naturally, we start with the definition. A temporary residence permit in Russia is a document given to a foreigner that provides him/her with the right to reside in Russia for a specified period. When this period ends, a foreigner should either get a Russia permanent residence permit in case this person wants to stay in the country, or leave its territory. The permit is implemented in the form of a special stamp in a foreigner’s passport.

The validity period of temporary residence In Russia is three years. The documents are not extendable, and those who want to stay apply for a permanent Russia permanent residence permit.

After getting this stamp, a foreigner can reside and legally work in the country, and no work permit is required for this.

Document package to obtain a temporary residence permit in the Russian Federation

To make an application, you must provide the following package of documents *:

  • Passport or ID of a foreigner (color copies)
  • A document providing the reason to stay in Russia (for example, documents on student enrollment in a local university)
  • medical certificates (following the standard scheme)
  • documents confirming the absence of criminal records in a native country for a foreigner
  • confirmation of free Russian language speaking (exams), in some cases history and the legal basis.
  • notification of residing in the country
  • Confirmation of income, or sufficient funds for the person and his / her family members (if any).

* Sometimes local authorities may require some other additional documents at their discretion.

When you collect the document set, foreigners provide the package to the Russian migration service.
