Registration of visa
If you are staying at a hotel, the hotel administration will register your visa for the whole period of your stay there. If you are staying at a private accommodation, your visa can be registered only by the owner of this property (apartment/house).
The absence of the registration will not allow you to perform any legal actions and can be the reason for a penalty or arrest by police.
The procedure for registering a visa (that is, applying for migration accounting) is very difficult. It is required to fill in the Notification form on the arrival of a foreign citizen, and the landlord must personally visit the office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs or the MFC. See more...
