    Temp Residence permit - again

    I know it's been asked lots of times, but what are the exact requirements for getting a Temp Residence Permit if you are married to a Russian?

    Thanks

    No special requirements, just make the medical tests and submit the documents to your local OVIR (when you will be registered).
    Birth certificate, police certificate, marriage certificate, copy of both passports, medical attestation (got from accredited places, OVIR will tell you), attestation of your wife that she allows you to be registered in her place (Or property documents if YOU owe a property in Russia). Bank statement showing that you have "enough money to live in Russia". For a 5 years permit, about $20k. I noticed that now some local OVIR do not even ask this document, if you are married since a few years and if you or your wife owes a residence.
    All non Russian documents must have the apostille, then must be translated into Russian and notarized.
    Receiving the residence permit requests 3 to 6 months, it depends of the mood of the clerks, the weather, etc. Agencies that promise it for 1 or 2 months just lie (or supply false documents!)

    The only thing that I'm not clear about is the police certificate, as it varies from country to country.

    Can someone please tell me what is required from a UK citizen - I remember a post saying that you could get some sort of letter from the consulate, which would be sufficient, but I've also heard of the need to get some sort of document from the UK.
    Is there a UK citizen here who has done this recently, please?

    Try this:

    Metropolitan Police Service - Subject Access Forms


    You will definitely need a police check and will need to request whats called Subject Access. When you receive the police check or subject access document you will have to send it back again to be apostiled.

    Looks like the pasting is not work I will try this way met.police.uk/dataprotection of course www. before it.

    I have recently completed a Temporary residency application and I am now waiting on an answer. Or should I say my Russian wife did most of the legwork, enquiries, and negotiations. I am afraid nobody spoke English at all. All applications and forms are in Russian. All your documents need to be legally translated and stamped. All I did was go to an office to give signatures, and get medical checkups at various places including the nut house. You will also need a list of all your family , their birth dates, occupation, and places of birth.

    Very difficult to get if you are not married, only a limited number get through. Ex soviets get priority. I would be very interested to hear if an American or Brit has been successful with application of a temporary Residency recently without being married.

    Correct Clean32. Is nutter or nut-house a British only phrase? How about nutty as a fruit-cake.

    In my emails there was a post here asking me some questions. I can't find it any more and I can only presume he found the answers.

    Yes you do need to hand in a police check and it must be apostiled and transated. The British Embassy won't help you, I've tried.

    I can't remember the amount required in your bank account but no more than 500 for a married couple. Looking at previous posts I can only assume it's a lot more for expats doing it alone without a wife.

    My wife has just gone today to Odentsova to check whether I have my Temporary Residency. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed. But as my wife said. we have every right to have it, as Iam married with two dependant young children.

    I was in days ago. Right now they do not require any money on your account.

    But don't forget that all medical tests should be done before going to FMS (this is not like this for SNG sitizens) in authorized hospitals only.

    In Moscow all the tests cost 1275 rubles.

    The benefits of having a temporary Residency of which I am sure you already know and that's why you are applying are

    No more getting out of Moscow when you don't want to
    The right to work with any choice of company without restriction.

    But also the right to be self employed and register as an entrepenuer and pay a reasonable rate of tax, be legal (that's my next step)

    Well, it seems normal, we are in Russia! How can people ask to be a resident without knowing the language?

    I'm not complaining. But how good should our Russian be at the beginning. Would you say fluent enough to deal with the whole application process. It takes time to learn a language, Especially Russian.

    Perhaps Britain is the only internationally friendly country in the world. A lot of government applications are equipped for Indians, Pakisyanis and EU members for Example. They can even ask for a translater if they wish. Not that I am saying our world is perfect but we are all becoming globalised.

    As I said I'm not complaining, but I would not have succeeded with any Russian applications without the assistance of my wife. And let's not forget the Russian verbal questions. How did the nut house doctor, who didn't speak English decide I wasn't insane? My wife had to translate for me.
