Obtaining Migration Permits
Extending Your Visa
All international students are usually issued a single-entry visa for 90 days. Then your visa must be extended, and a new multi-entry visa will be issued. To extend your visa you must come to the Samara University International Office at least 40 days before your visa expires, and present the following documents:
1. Passport (or other identification document).
2. Your migration card.
3. Your registration permit slip.
4. One photo (matte, 3x4 cm, with no corners or frames).
5. State duty payment document.
6. A copy of your contract; for students with state-sponsored study places – a copy of the education programme authorisation issued by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science.
Leaving Russia Before Your Visa Expires
Whether you can leave Russia before your original visa expires depends on the type of visa you have. For the first three months (while you have a single-entry visa), you will not be allowed to leave Russia (for the 90 days of your visa’s validity). If you do, Samara University will have to send you another invitation to come (30 days). In three months, after you receive a multiple-entry visa, you will be able to travel in and out of Russia.
