Sparky, your wife need not do her UK passport translation,  copy will be enough.

This is where the old saying of you mileage may vary

we need to have it translated and notorised and stamped by the local police chief in our Region :(

Thanks Mendy.

- The FMA has stressed that any entry into Russia, no matter how short that visit may be, you must register prior to leaving Russia. (That may impact those planning holiday travel when many state offices are closed for extended periods of time.)

That may indeed cause problems.

Probably a question for Sparky:-

Do you have any idea how long the process takes? Is it just a question of getting the forms from OVIR, completing them and visiting FMS? In short, could it be done in a single day?

So far we are at 3 days and counting Trevor

I plan to go to Russian because of this new law in the end of September. Plus, there are other things for me to arrange there.

This is why my wife has stayed on this time to sort this out

Admins - perhaps this thread should be moved to the Visa, Legal Paperwork and Other Documentation section and made sticky?

I agree. Done.
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'?

Getting important documents translated and notarised in Russia is a standard procedure i've found.  Good luck Sparky!

So It has been Done  :party0011:

We have now informed the Russian Gov that Mrs Sparky has Dual nationality

Why or what they will use it for who knows but we have complied with the Russian law and time will tell what hoops we will jump through in the future.

So here we go timeline

Go to UFMS collect form

Get Passport translated photocopied and notorised

Go back to UFMS and get it accepted and stamped

Go to local police office and register the stamped copy from UFMS (we think this is a special requirement because of close proximity to the troubles in the Donbass area) no real reason given just at this moment in time you need to wifey was told.

Total time taken spread over 3 days about 6 hours most of which was spent in busy UFMS office and various offices not being open and appointment for Notary.

Cost 1200 roubles

Thanks for your detailed information! If I understand you correctly, you have done it by the postal way while still staying outside of Russia? Why do you say that you WENT to the UFMS to get your documents accepted?

I did not quite understand why do you need to get her passport translated? If she has a Russian passport, why to translate it?

Is there a particular form on the UFMS site to fill out and to print?

So that's about 62p at the current Rouble rate?

Hi Belle

No My wife has done this whilst in the country, it a hell of a lot easier this way as i understand

It was her British passport she had to photocopy and have translated and the translation of this notorised

All document had to be taken to her local UFMS office to be verified and stamped after this, the police part is i think just because we are very close to the border with Donetsk region of Ukraine

As for the web site we did not use as we were in Country

Hope that helps

That's what I think.
They create a database for now.
Then they will decide what to do with all of us or with each of us.  :rolleye0009:

Of course a paranoid, conspiracy theorist type of person might think the Russians are creating a database so their security services could create foreign IDs for their spies. Then again that's not really so far fetched, the Israelis did and probably still do something like that for their Mossad/security service agents.  :hidechair: :hidechair:
