Every foreigner who travels to Russia should have his Russian visa registered within 7 working days upon arrival (Federal Law #42-FZ). If you are traveling to Russia for more than 7 working days you will need to register your visa. If you don’t register your visa you could be fined or incur more severe consequences. The registration of Work, Study and Humanitarian visas is usually carried out by the host company or organization at its own expense right after your arrival in Russia, while the registration of tourist and business visas must be taken care of directly by the foreign citizen: fi you are staying in a hotel, you will be able to easily take care of the registration at the reception desk for a small fee.
