On arrival in Russia all passengers must submit a completed migration card to the immigration police along with their passport and visa.

Cards are distributed by the airlines during your flight to Russia or can be collected in the arrival hall.

The form is made up of two identical parts. Both parts must be completed on arrival and the first part is then retained by the police. The second part is date stamped and returned to the passenger. On departure from Russia this remaining part must be re-submitted to the immigration police who will retain it.
