Tighter registration rules in Saint Petersburg for forein and Russian nationals

This year Saint Petersburg is the host city of 2018 FIFA World Cup.

From May 25, 2018 to July 25, 2018 Absolutely all foreign nationals should be registered with migration registration authorities.

Foreign nationals coming to Saint Petersburg and staying at hotels do not need to take any additional action. Hotels will ensure that they are registered with the migration authorities.

Foreign nationals not staying at a hotel should make sure that their host is able to submit a notice to migration registration authorities within 1 day of their arrival in Russia.

These registration rules apply to absolutely all foreign citizens, including those who are not required to register at the usual time (citizens of Armenia, Kirghizia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine):

  1. Foreign nationals must be registered with migration registration authorities within 24 hours of their arrival;
  2. Documents for registration with migration registration authorities must be submitted in person so registration cannot be done through the post office;
  3. Failure to register can result in fines of up to RUB 5,000 and deportation outside the Russian Federation.
