As many of you may already know, The Russian shut down for New Year this year is from 01-jan to 08 jan inc.

However, be advised, that sat 28 dec is officially a working day as a replacement day for 31 dec, and added to this, most places will operate with very restricted staff on mon 30 dec.

Many people are planning to take a days paid/unpaid hols, or just appear at the start of working day, stay for an hour or so, then go home again.

If this could cause you a problem ref registration within the 7 days (Ex hols period), then the advice is to register at a PO asap upon arrival...

Perfect advise for the holiday period
Even better advise for the clowns that try to avoid the registration process whenever they think that they can.

There is no need for you to register, as you arrive on a holiday day, and when you leave, you will only be in russia for 1 working day....

I'm flying out just before the new year. I won't be there for 7 working days due to the Russian public holidays but I already know the post office is going to be open for a few days during that period and for the sake of 15 mins and £4 I do intend to register my visa.

P O's will be open for some of the period, ...

I have not said that visitors should not register, I always tell people when asked, that its best to register, even for periods of less than the 7 days, as I personally prefer to be safe rather than sorry.

However, the law is the law, and anyone staying in russia for less than 7 WORKING days, does not need to register their visa, and holidays do not count as working dyas.....

My only reason for starting the post, was as a warning to those who will arrive before the 27th, and leave just after the 9th, and have calculated their 7 days with the 28th (sat) being a NON working days.............IT is a working day, as is the 30th and the 31st for registration calculations....

Having been a regular over for the last 4 years bar last year(wife with me and we went DME-Bus station-Bogorodoritsk straight away rather then spend the morning in Moscow) I have always registered directly with Real Russia, it only takes just over an hour of your time if your in Moscow.
