Russian Visa Registration Information:

By Russian law you are required to register your visa within 72 hours of arrival to Russia. When you're staying at a hotel, the reception clerk will register your visa automatically upon check in. In case you are not staying at a hotel, your Russian host will need to go with you to a local Post Office and submit a Notice of Arrival form on your behalf with their name and address as the receiving party (the form has to be filled out in Russian). The form is mailed to a local branch of the Federal Migration Service (post offices have all instructions and addresses). You will need to include copies of your passport, Russian visa and Migration Card with the form when you mail it. Immediately after you leave Russia (or the city you registered in), your host will need to mail in a Notice of Departure to the FMS with your departure date specified. We strongly recommend to follow visa registration requirements to avoid any possible complications upon departure from Russia.
