The system of registering all foreign visitors implemented by Soviet Union during the “cold war”, unfortunately, did not vanish with the collapse of the USSR. It remains a must law in Russia as well as several newly Independent States and is strictly enforced by the local police in each city. Although it has gone through considerable modification and is under constant revision to ease the travel prospective, it can be a cause for stress if ignored. There are usually several options how and where to registry your visa. To make sure you don’t waste valuable time by dealing with the bureaucracy upon arrival, please contact your travel Consultant in advance to make sure the registration is arranged and will not affect your budget and travel plans. The fees for visa registration range from $1 to $150. There are also hefty fines for not following the requirements.
