How to register a foreign national at the place of sojourn?

Any foreign national arriving in the RF must be registered at the place of sojourn. The registration is carried out upon receipt by a territorial body of the Federal Migration Service (FMS) of the notice of arrival of the foreign national at place of sojourn (Item 21 of the Decree of the Government of the RF dated 15.01.2007 N 9). Such a notice is submitted to the FMS body by the receiving party or by the foreign national in person (Item 3, Article 20 of the Law dated 18.07.2006 N 109-ФЗ).

Notice of arrival of the foreign national that resides permanently or temporarily in the territory of the RF, must be submitted to the FMS within seven business days upon the day of arrival at the place of sojourn (Items 1, 2, Item 3, Article 20 of the Law dated 18.07.2006 N 109-ФЗ).

Notice of arrival of certain categories of foreign nationals, for example, foreign nationals without a place of residence or staying at any hotel, spa, resort, etc., must be submitted to the FMS within one business day following the day of their arrival at the place of sojourn (Subitem 3, Item 3, Article 20 of the Law dated 18.07.2006 N 109-ФЗ).

Qualified experts and foreign nationals that are qualified expert’s family members do not have to submit their notice of arrival in case their period of sojourn in the territory of the RF does not exceed 90 days. Upon expiry of that period, the foreign nationals must undergo migration registration according to the general procedure, within the period of maximum seven business days (Item 4.1, Article 20 of the Law dated 18.07.2006 N 109-ФЗ).

Note. As regards receiving parties, theses can be, for example, a national of the RF, a foreign national that is a permanent resident of the RF, a legal entity, a diplomatic representative or a consular office of any foreign state in the RF, an international organization or a representative office thereof in the RF. As regards receiving parties of family members, this can also be a foreign national that is a qualified expert, who owns certain residential premises in the territory of the RF (Item. 3.1 of the Order of the FMS of Russia dated 29.08.2013 N 364).

In order to obtain migration registration, the following algorithm should be followed.

Step 1. Contact your receiving party or the FMS body at the place of sojourn, either directly, or through a multifunctional center (MFC), or to a post office (Item. 18 of the Administrative Regulation approved by the Order of the FMS of Russia dated 29.08.2013 N 364).

Step 2. Fill in the notice of arrival at the place of sojourn.
The receiving party or the foreign national must specify in the notice of arrival data of the person to be registered and of the receiving party (Items 23, 24 of the Decree of the Government of the RF dated 15.01.2007 N 9).

Step 3. Submit the following documents (Items 26, 29, 29.1, 30 of the Decree of the Government of the RF dated 15.01.2007 N 9):

- an original letter of consent of the receiving party;
- originals and copies of personal identification documents of the foreign national;
- a copy of personal identification documents of the Russian national (of the foreign national or a person in charge in the organization) acting as a receiving party – in case the foreign national contacts the FMS in person;
- copies of documents substantiating valid reasons that have prevented the receiving party from submitting the notice of arrival. This is necessary in case the FMS is directly contacted by a foreign national that temporarily resides or stays in the RF;
- a detachable part of the notice of arrival from the previous place of sojourn in the RF, in case one has arrived at any new place of sojourn;
- originals and copies of proof of family relationship. This is necessary for qualified experts acting as a receiving party for their family members.

Copies of the migration card and documents evidencing the right of use of residential premises are submitted at the initiative of the foreign national. In case the above documents have not been submitted, the territorial body of the FMS of Russia requests the necessary information itself (Items 42, 43, 44 of the Order of the FMS of Russia dated 29.08.2013 N 364).

Step 4. Collect the detachable part of the notice of arrival form with the receipt acknowledgment mark.
Foreign national may be registered at the place of sojourn by the hotel management, bodies of the FMS of Russia, the MFC or offices of the federal post communications immediately upon receipt of the notice of arrival, accuracy checking of the data contained therein and checking of availability of the required documents (Item. 23 of the Order of the FMS of Russia dated 29.08.2013 N 364).

Receipt acknowledgment mark is put in the detachable part of the notice of arrival form and duplicated on the notice of arrival form (Item. 94 of the Order of the FMS of Russia dated 29.08.2013 N 364). An official or an employee puts the receipt acknowledgment mark of the notice of arrival and returns to the applicant the detachable part of the notice of arrival form (Item. 96 of the Order of the FMS of Russia dated 29.08.2013 N 364).

Attention!
No government duty is charged for registration of the foreign national at the place of sojourn (Item. 52 of the Order of the FMS of Russia dated 29.08.2013 N 364).
