Migration Card forms are issued to foreign citizens upon entry to Russia free of charge by officials of border control agencies or representatives of organizations providing transport services to foreigners visiting Russia.

The Migration Card is kept by a foreign citizen during the whole period of his/her stay in Russia and it is submitted together with other documents for registration at the place of his/her stay in Russia.
