Regarding changes in the rules of migration registration
According to the amendments of the Federal Law "On Migration Registration of Foreign Citizens and Stateless Persons in the Russian Federation", which come into force on September 7, foreign citizens are allowed to provide living space for the actual residence of other foreign citizens and to be a host party when registering for migration.
The law made the following changes:
• When submitting an arrival notification of a foreign citizen in electronic form, a copy of a detachable part of the notification will serve as proof that the host party has performed the actions necessary to register the foreign citizen at the place of stay;
• When a foreign citizen resides in a room that belongs by right to a foreign citizen of the Russian Federation, this foreign citizen must personally notify the migration registration authority of his arrival at the place of stay, provided that the notarized consent of the receiving party is obligatory;
• If the foreign citizen is already on the migration registration, the registration at the previous place of stay will not be removed from the registration at the new place of stay at the address of the hotel or other organization that provides hotel services, except for the case if the previous registration of this foreign citizen at the place of stay was made at the address of another organization from among the specified.
