I've posted this on the "reisdency status" forum but wanted to add it here as well.

If any of you have residency permits (vid na zhitelsvto) bear in mind, an application to extend the permit needs to be submitted - six months - before it expires. A non Russian passport with validity more than five years needs to be submitted to get the full five year extension. Go to the Migration Service on Pokrovka to get this done.

Proof of local registration (propiska) also needs to be submitted with the extension application, obtained from the local migration officials. The registration application needs a month, officially. Start this a month before extneding the residency permit.

Both the local registration and permit extension are reviewed by the FSB and tax officials. Be prepared to submit tax statements as well.
