View Full Version : What visa do I need?

I have a question about what visa I need.

I am American, and have lived and worked in Moscow for 5 years now, and every year. I have a 1 year comercial visa. Now I think that I need a 1 year work permit. My current visa expires on Aug 1.

However, I am planning on getting married soon. Maybe in August or September. So, can I get just a commercial visa and then after I am married get a different type of visa or residency permit? I don't want to travel to the US for visa.

Does anyone have some advice?

Thanks, Donald

If you plan to live here most of your time, you must apply for a residence permit. Temporary first, valid 3 years. "Permanent" then, valid 5 years. It will allow you to work as a work permit does.
