Your doc­u­ments are col­lect­ed by the staff of the Visa and reg­is­tra­tions Depart­ment and brought to the Migra­tion Ser­vice. To pro­vide this you should come to the Visa and reg­is­tra­tions Depart­ment SPSFTU next work­ing day after your arrival.

You will get migra­tion card while cross­ing the bor­der. It is an impor­tant doc­u­ment, don’t lose it or throw away, you will be asked to give it back each time when you leave Rus­sia. Please check that your name and sur­name are writ­ten cor­rect­ly and com­plete­ly, and that your Pur­pose of Trav­el in the migra­tion card is Edu­ca­tion («Учёба»). If any infor­ma­tion is incor­rect, please, ask bor­der con­trol offi­cer for correction.

If inter­na­tion­al stu­dents are plan­ning to stay in the tran­sit city on their way to Saint Peters­burg (for exam­ple Moscow), they have to keep and bring their hotel/hostel and trans­port tick­ets to the Visa and reg­is­tra­tions Department.

You will be reg­is­tered until the date of valid­i­ty of your visa and, if your peri­od of intend­ed stay is longer, you will have to pro­long your visa and reg­is­tra­tion. Please note that you should apply for the visa pro­lon­ga­tion one and a half month before the ter­mi­na­tion of your cur­rent visa valid­i­ty. Please, remem­ber that for your visa pro­lon­ga­tion the valid­i­ty of your pass­port must be more than 18 months at the time you apply for it.
