All foreign citizens arriving in the Russian Federation must fill in a migration card. Free forms of the migration card are issued on the plane/train and before the passport control at the airport.
The migration card is a proof that you have crossed the border of the Russian Federation legally.
How do I fill in the migration card?
The migration card must be filled in in Russian, claerly and without blots and corrections, and the purpose of your stay must be STUDY.
After filling out the card, give it to a border guard officer. You will receive a tear-off part of the form - this is your migration card, which is important to keep throughout your stay on the territory of the Russian Federation.
Period of validity of the migration card
The migration card is valid as long as you are on the territory of the Russian Federation. If a foreign citizen leaves the territory of the Russian Federation, he/she returns the migration card at the border control, and when re-entering fills out a new one.
