Visa situation

The 90-day visa rule is indeed being enforced, it was confirmed recently. It's a good thing I was already researching work visas.

I've got one option that seems reasonable, and hopefully I'll have the details straightened out in the next few days.

It's still not clear how this will affect the overall presence of foreigners in Russia. There are ways to get work/study visas, but work visas can be pretty costly for the employer, and applying for a license takes several months, so many people will probably experience a delay while waiting for all the paperwork to come through. In the meantime, those without a work/study option are trying to figure out how to space out their 90 days within the 180-day period...
