Personal Safety Tips
Dear international students,
Pursuant to the state security policy, a police officer can stop you at any time on the street / in the metro / in a public place and check your documents. Please carefully read the Guidance on Encounters with the Police for Foreign Nationals and make sure to have the following documents with you at all times:
- Passport with a valid visa
- Migration card
- Valid registration slip
Keep your registration and your migration card with you at all times. Also, carry photocopies of these documents with you just in case.
You can request to get a copy of your passport authorized and stamped by the Visa & Registration Centre in order to carry it with you instead of the original. Keep the original passport in a safe place. Address the Head of the Visa & Registration Centre to authorize your copy. All questions must be addressed to Visa & Registration Centre 20 Myasnitskaya Ul., office 538 +7 (495) 531 0063 firstname.lastname@example.org visa.hse.ru/en
