Immigration to Russia
Immigrating to Russia is one of the hardest nuts to crack on Earth. Especially for those who do not have any contacts in Russia. So why is it so? Probably it is one of the solutions imposed by the authorities to curb illegal immigrant population in Russia which has been rising exponentially in recent years. Russia is better known as Eurasia. A part of it is still considered in Asia and another part being in Europe. We’ll take a look at how we can proceed or try to crack down this complex procedure into simplified terms.
Whatever you wish, start by learning Russian language. Language is one of the most extensive barriers you’ll likely face there. Everything is in Russian, Russian and only Russian. English is still not widely used in Russia. It is advisable to take a preparatory course or read a Russian language book. If you manage to find someone who could help you with that then it’s splendid. Please note that there are private agencies in Russia who charge a good sum for the same work if you find it difficult to do by yourself.
On whatever visa you go to Russia (Business, student, private, work), if you intend to wish to immigrate you have to follow the rigid rules. You have to be very patient as it takes a good long time. The first step involves getting a Russian temporary residence permit. For TRP you have to go to OVIR (Russian federal Migration Services). They will give you all the forms (a lot) to be filled only in Russian (remember don’t do any mistakes otherwise you’ll fill them again which will make you go crazy all the way). Next you’ll follow a series of medical tests. Plus you’re required to deposit a set of mandatory documents and their photocopies. (Oh…already tired…you’ve to do more).You deposit your forms with the fees and wait for six months (quite a long period of time but can’t be helped). If your things are in order and legal then you’ll be issued a TRP in your passport (it’s just a stamp) for three years.
You got your TRP, great, wait for one more year to apply for your Russian permanent residence (PR). The procedure is almost as same as that of TRP. You’ll get more rights and freedom to move and work in Russia once you get your PR. The PR takes six months to be issued. It is issued for five years.
You conquered a great battle. But hey, wait, are you ready to wait for more years (not less than five) which will make you eligible to apply for Russian citizenship. I hope you’ve got patience to wait that long. Good luck.
