After receiving an NSU invitation for a Russian visa, you get a single-entry, 90 day student visa.

Migration registration after arrival

Within 3 working days after your arrival at NSU, you must provide the International Relations Office with the following documents for migration registration at a dormitory address:

  • copy of all passport pages (foreign citizen identity document);
  • copy of migration card given to you when crossing the Russian Federation border.

Please note that the migration registration paper you will receive within a week is a legal document as is your migration card so keep them safe during your stay in Russia. If you have lost your passport, migration card, or migration registration paper, please contact the International Relations Office.

Please note that you must follow migration registration procedures every time you arrive at the NSU campus from your home country, from another Russian city, or after changing your residential address. If you are renting an apartment, you must be registered by the apartment’s owner within 7 working days.

Visas during your studies

To extend your visa, you need to submit the following documents 1.5 months before your visa expiration date:

  • passport (foreign citizen identity document);
  • migration card;
  • migration registration paper;
  • a photograph (30mm×40mm, with your head centered in the frame covering 50% of the photo area, without any marks or stamps on the photo);
  • bank receipt for the state visa extension fee (1600 rub.);
  • copy of your NSU Agreement for paid educational services/internship or a document by the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education certifying that a student has been granted a Russian Government Scholarship.

Within a month after submitting documents, you will obtain a new multiple-entry student visa for the required period, but no longer than a year. If your stay at NSU lasts longer, you have to repeat the visa extension procedure next year. Please note that you can travel outside the Russian Federation with this type of visa.

In case of an early expulsion or taking an academic leave, you must provide the following documents for a transit visa as soon as possible

  • passport (foreign citizen identity document);
  • migration card;
  • migration registration paper;
  • a photograph (30mm×40mm, with the head centered in the frame covering 50% of the photo area, without any marks or stamps on the photo);
  • bank receipt for the state transit visa fee (1000 rub.);
  • flight tickets (including transfers) to another country.
