    Temporary Residency- NEW LAW

    Could someone please provide me with information about the office where to get the application for Temporary Residency, phone number, address and any possible details about the process, whether or not I'm allow to remain in Russian territory with the current 1 year ME Business Visa while the Temporary Residency is approved. I'm married to a Russian citizen. Is there a way to speed up this process.

    Thank you.

    I guess you don't need to tell her what the russian for 'temp res', she will get it herself. Just go and ask in OVIR very often one can simply ask people in line (or queue ) which most probably be there and she'll get tons of info .

    unfortunately, this link is only about the procedures for those entering without a visa (CIS citizens) -
    do you have a link to the info for the rest of us?

    Thank you.

    There is an advert in a lot of metro wagons with the list of the 8 (I think 8) offices of the Federal Migration Services, address and phone number. Maybe I should make a pic and post it here as this question often comes?!

    Asking a RP does not give any more right with your visa. Anyway you do not need to stay in Russia after you applied and before it is accepted.

    Being married to a Russian citizen is a good thing but does not help to get the permit, in theory. What is more important - and critical - is to have a place to live. If your wife (or you) is owner of an apartment, or if your wife has her propiska here, it is ok. (You must apply in the FMS office of the area where you will live, so where the propiska is, or where your apartment is).

    About the process all has already been said here XX times: get the blanks in the FMS (2 copies) and fill them, submit a marriage certificate, a copy of your passport, a criminal record from your native country, go to the medical tests (the FMS will give you the list of the places to go) and get the final spravka, pay the 400 rub fee (the FMS will give you the bank payment paper), give all the documents to the FMS and wait about 5 to 6 months.

    You can speed the process BUT it will never take less than 3 to 4 months. Unless you really motivate the people at a high level... But if you go this way, be sure to receive a REAL and LEGIT document, not something printed at home by a Photoshop artist!

    Yes, please do take the photo & publish it - it would be very helpful!

    Please note, that your Embassy is actually in many cases an authorised body to provide you with all certificates (notarised). As I don't see any court apostilles in the process, you could probably easily do it without having to go back home and join queues there. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

    Guest, good post, man. Thanks!

    I had to receive my police by post from UK to Russia. I then had to send it back again to another authority to get it apostilled and then returned back to me by DHL.

    But at least I did it all by staying in Russia.

    Just something that must be told, even if...

    Courrier services (Fedex, DHL etc) since a few months do not allow to send documents as passports but also BIRTH CERTIFICATES! It is in theory illegal to send or receive such documents by courrier service, in Russia.

    Courrier companies abroad generally check and will automatically decline the enveloppe if there is a passport. For BC I think it can be "hidden" among other documents. A Swiss friend just got in trouble last month, Fedex didn't accept a sending to him in Peterburg, with a BC. The sender finally went to DHL and put the BC inside a few letters...

    Believe me, I got my police check sent, and then returned with an apostille,. but yes probably different with passports etc.

    An idea I thought of was for the police to send it to be apostiled. However they will refuse as they will only post to the address of whom they are convinced is you. Something to do with to do with data protection acts.

    Very funny I think, as we make it rather public when we start sending it to another authority.

    For birth certificate, divorce papers etc there is an appropriate web site where you can apply and get your documents by normal post. That is for Brits and I would assume other countries have the same service. Warning! I would be aware when making searches and end up with agencies who will promise you documents from any country and charge you a much higher fee.
