Russia Emigration

To travel to the Russian Federation most foreign nationals are required to have a visa.

Will I need a residence permit?

If you are planning to reside in Russia on a full-time basis, you will have to obtain a residence permit. There are two types of permit: temporary and permanent.

Permanent residence permit

To obtain a permanent residence permit you will need to apply. The process is as follows:

  • Submitting the set of documents to the internal affairs body of the territory you lawfully stay in Russia
  • Registration of the application by the above bodies and issue of the certificate confirming receipt of the application
  • Consideration of the application by the internal affairs body and sending requests to other bodies of authorities
  • Decision to issue or refuse a residence permit
