Hi All,

Back for more advice with a new trip to Russia planned.

My question is that I my wife and I will be coming back to Russia for a month or two and while in Russia I will be staying at my wifes home which she still owns. I would like to know if she as owner of the house could still register me to stay with her under the normal tourist visa registration.

I was under the belief that as the house is owned by my wife i cannot stay at her home unless under a guest visa which would be better to avoid due to being a long and tedious process.

Much appreciate any help! Cheers, Terry

It's not a problem. Assuming your wife is registered at the address of that home in her internal passport then she can legally register you on a tourist visa at that address without any issues.

The only thing that doesn't quite make sense is that you say you are planning to go for a couple of months. There is no tourist visa that lasts for longer than 30 days so if you are intending on going for more than 30 days you will need a different type of visa (i.e. not a tourist one). You can apply for a family visit visa (single entry visa lasting 3 months) but this will require you to make a trip in person with your wife to the VAC in Gee Street, London to make the application. There is also a restriction with this type of visa in that officially you must be accompanied by your wife when entering and leaving Russia.

100% correct.

The other option is a business visa.
The business visa allows you to enter and leave Russia without the need to be accompanied, and I am sure that you will be conducting some form of business while in Russia (Helping grocery shop owners to maintain a healthy profit (by buying groceries)) is a good example.

Thanks for the help, very much appreciated. Looks like the stay will be for 2 to 3 weeks now so might go the Business visa just in case...!
Cheers, Terry
