As you may recall, my current visa is good for 90 days. But since it's a student visa, I don't have to leave Russia to extend it.
Sometimes everything is just a little too casual for my liking. For example, I was told that my visa would be changed from a single-entry to a multi-entry when I arrived. But I recently found out that the switch was never made. I guess they had forgotten and I hadn't asked. This happened with a few other documents as well. I usually know enough to ask questions, but I wonder what happens to people who are here for the first time and/or don't speak Russian!
So this is what I had to do to extend my current visa...
"I'm here to extend my visa," I announced. +/-
