View Full Version : Moving to Russia, need to know about Residency process

26-03-2009, 01:24
I am moving to Russia to become a Permanant Resident. I know that While I come I can file for 1st the tempory and after approx. 6 months than can file for the Permanant Residency! My ? is, does anyone know, will I have to go back to the USA while waiting for the Permanant Residency to be processed, or will they issue an extension so I can stay in Russia during this time?

Is there anyone out there who has had recent experience with this process?

Thanks ,

Acc. to my knowledge (I'm Austrian citizen) there is no need to leave the country, while the extension is ongoing.
You can make it sure at the FMS by phone: +7 (495) 698-00-78
