General information on temporary residence

  • A temporary residence permit (TRP) is issued for three years

  • When the decision to grant a foreign national the temporary residence status in Russia has been made, a stamp to that effect is placed in his or her passport

  • The Russian Migration Service is required to make a decision on granting or refusing the temporary residence status within the following time frame*:

    — six months for foreign nationals who need a visa to enter Russia

    — two months for foreign nationals who do not need a visa to enter Russia
  • The TRP cannot be renewed

  • A temporary residence permit can be used as grounds for obtaining a permanent residence permit 

 * – however, in practical terms, there can be a long time lapse between the decision to grant a temporary residence permit and the actual receipt of temporary residence status by the foreign national.
