    Documents Required For Citizenship

    I searched the forum but can't find any thread related to it. What are the required documents to apply for the Russian citizenship through a family member?
    Do one need to take a family member along to apply for the Citizenship or relationship proof is enough?

    you are schlepping all the way out to Sacharovo? a RUSSIAN national is only allowed in there if you have a letter from a -notarius- that your knowledge of russian language is not good enough to read and write and understand what is being wanted from you. a family member can not apply, you have to go there yourself.

    I applied for and got Russian citizenship but didn't post the list of documents needed to make the application because sometimes, the requirements change.

    I suggest you go to this site:

    https://78.мвд.рф/ms/гражданство-российской-федерации

    and look here:

    Good luck!

    You do have to apply for yourself, but, if you are legally married to a Russian citizen, he/she can definitely go to Sakharovo with you. They just check your spouse's marriage stamp. If it matches they don't ask any more questions.

    My husband will be applying through his Russian citizen father. Is attaching a copy of his Birth certificate and his fatherís passport enough? As I read somewhere at Sakharovo they require original of every document. How can we provide fatherís passport without his presence?

    Ask them if notarised/apostiled copy is enough, you can ask his father to do it and send by fast mail.

    Yeah. I went 6 or 7 times myself and noticed that there were constantly couples there. Twice my wife came with me and they just check the marriage stamp. That's it. No more questions asked.

    I am sure a photocopy won't be enough. It will need to be either apostilled or notarized.

    If your husband is a permanent resident in Russia and his father is a Russian citizen living in Russia, your husband can apply as shown here:

    https://78.xn--b1aew.xn--p1ai/grazhdanstvo/prost

    Or, if your husband speaks Russian like a native speaker, he can apply in this way:

    https://78.xn--b1aew.xn--p1ai/grazhdanstvo/ross

    Don't know what procedure can be used for someone whose father was born in the USSR and lives outside Russia. There might be one...

    Sounds like you need to make a trip to Sakharova for consultation.
