Visa prolongation

In previous lessons we've talked about student's and worker's primary actions after arrival to Russia. You already know how to fill migration card, what is a Migration Registration and why is it important. Time to find out how to extend your current 90-days valid visa.

Tip: Usually, you don't have to do it by yourself, your employer or University worker assumes full responsibility for all organizational work. But is useful to know what exactly they do with your documents. 

The duration of stay of a foreigner in the territory of the Russian Federation is determined by the validity period of his (her) visa.
The foreign citizen is obliged to depart from the Russian Federation upon the expiry of the authorized term of stay. To extend the visa validity period and the duration of stay the visitor should apply to one of the Migration Service offices in advance, before the expiry of the abovementioned validity term.
