    Russian vehicle registration - visa tied?

    Upon registering a vehicle Russia (purchased locally) the registration is temporary, its end date coincides with the end date the visa.
    My question is what happens when one registers a vehicle for 3 years for instance (ex: HQS visa) and then leaves Russia for a period of time, or switches to 90 days business visas (the 3-year visa being cancelled).

    Does this vehicle remain registered for the 3 year duration, and can be driven in and out of country?

    From my experience, the registration period will be same as your initial visa period unless you show up on your own to extend/change it.
    To avoid all these hassels, I register my vehicles on my wife (Russian national).

    Wonder if anyone crossed the border with the vehicle registered on a previously cancelled visa ...

    Try just getting in the other lane going in reverse. Just say I forgot something and I need to go back and get it.

    This is how I get on the metro after closing time, in through the out door.
