Regarding the expiration of the period of stay of foreign citizens in the territory of Russia
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation informs that the period for which foreign citizens can stay on the territory of the Russian Federation without obtaining permits is ending. In order to settle their legal situation, or to leave the Russian Federation, foreign citizens have a few days remaining.
Foreign citizens who arrived in Russia before March 15, 2020 and who, as of June 16, 2021, had no legal grounds to stay in the Russian Federation, were given the opportunity to apply to the territorial bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation until September 30, 2021 with a statement on the settlement of the legal situation, according to the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 364 "ON temporary measures to regulate the legal situation of foreign citizens and stateless persons in the Russian Federation during the period of overcoming the consequences of the spread of COVID-19".
It is possible to regulate your legal situation in the following ways:
• migration registration,
• obtaining a patent,
• submission of documents for obtaining a temporary residency permit,
• submission of documents for obtaining a residency permit (if there are grounds).
It is important to note that citizens of countries with which transport links have not been resumed can stay in Russia legally (if they were in the Russian Federation legally on March 15, 2020) without the need to contact the Ministry of Internal Affairs before the expiration of 90 days from the date of resumption of travel between the Russian Federation and these countries.
