Memo on the rules of migration legislation

As soon as a foreign student comes to Russia, it is necessary to register at the place of stay within 7 working days. Registration at BSTU named after V.G. Shukhov is made at the Center for International Education and Cooperation, office No. 3.

Upon arrival at the university campus and for registration, you need to decide on your place of residence and collect the appropriate package of documents

If you come to Russia, but realize that you do not have time to register within 7 days, then you need to contact a hostel or hotel and make a registration there. After you receive the detachable part of the notice of arrival from the hostel (registration form), within 3 days the university has the right to register you for migration at your place of stay (dormitory, apartment). You must also register at the hostel within 7 working days after crossing the border with the Russian Federation.

Documents for visa extension are submitted 40 days before the expiration of the previous valid visa. Documents are submitted to the international center, room 3.

To renew registration for countries with a visa-free regime, it is necessary to submit documents no later than 7 days before the end of the previous registration. Registration is extended for 1-3 year students for one year. If you are a graduate, the maximum extension period is until June 30, August 31 (depending on the date on the certificate of study issued by the dean’s office)

All students must reside at the place of registration. If you are registered in a dormitory, you must live in a dormitory; if you rent an apartment, then must stay at your residential address in the apartment.
