Documents required for staying in the Russian Federation

Under the law of the Russian Federation, foreign citizens may move freely within the territory of the Russian Federation with the following documents:

  1. Passport with a valid visa;
  2. Migration card;
  3. Registration.

It is enough to have copies of these documents while staying in Maykop. We also recommend you to have Student’s card and Dormitory pass on you at all times (in case you live in a hostel)

Migration registration 

Under the law of the Russian Federation, a foreign citizen must be registered by the Migration Service of the Russian Federation. For this purpose, after every arrival to Maykop you must present the following documents to Registration Office of the International Department (18 Zhukovskogo Street, 5th floor – hereafter -RO) during 3 days:

  1. Passport;
  2. Migration card;
  3. A ticket (tickets) to Maykop.

After this procedure, you will be given the paper of registration, the original of which you must preserve and keep intact as well as the migration card.

Registration and Migration card 

General cases of registration are classified as follows:

    • State Border crossing;
    • Coming from any city of Russia;
    • Hotel/hostel accommodation;
