This is a part of my series on applying for a temporary residency permit in St. Petersburg, Russia. Check out posts labeled "residency" for previous installations.

In case anyone is interested, here is the list of documents that I have to prepare for the FMS for temporary residency:

Note that these could vary across cities in Russia, and are subject to change.

-Passport; notarized translation (sewn together)
-Packet of medical tests
-HIV test (separate)
-Migration card; copy
-Registration; copy
-Copy of visa (they also need the original even though it isn't on the list...I had a copy with me and had to get the original from the university where it was on file)
-Criminal background check from home country (notarized, apostilled)
-Marriage/Divorce certificate, if applicable
-4 photos: 3.5x4.5 cm, matte finish, black and white
-2 copies of the application form
-Proof of having paid the government fee (1000 rubles, just raised from 400)
