Why do I need a residence permit?


Residence permit is a separate document, obtained by foreigners, and valid within five years. It confirms their right to freely leave the country and come back, to perform business activity. In addition, it allows foreign citizens enjoy almost all the rights provided for residents of the Russian Federation by the Law. However, the exclusion is service in state agencies and the Armed Forces, the right to vote (one cannot vote when choosing state power with residence permit in hand). The access to the information classified as state secret is also prohibited.

Please note that the extension of a residence permit can be rejected in certain cases. A reason for this procedure, as well as for cancellation of the current document, can serve the same reasons as for the refusal to issue a temporary residence permit.
