New Forms for De-registration from the Migration Register
From August 10, 2018, the receiving party (host) is obliged to notify the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the departure of any foreign citizens from their place of residence by submitting a notification (in a prescribed form) about the departure and thus cancel the migration registration at the address in question.
Until recently, there was no approved form for the notification of the departure of a foreign citizen, and in order to deregister a foreigner, it was necessary to take from the foreigner the detachable part of the notification form on the migration registration and transfer it to the migration authorities.
However, in practice it was practically impossible to do this, since the foreigners usually did not return this detachable part to the receiving party (host), creating substantial problems for hosts due to its absence.
Therefore, a new temporary form for notification of the departure of a foreign citizen has recently been officially approved. This form of deregistration is now being used.
These conditions were created on July 29, 2018, when President Putin signed Federal Law No. 257 “On Amendments to Articles 8 and 23 of the Federal Law 'On Migration Registration of Foreign Citizens and Stateless Persons in the Russian Federation,' thus making changes regulations on removing foreign citizens or stateless persons from their migration registration at their place of stay in the Russian Federation. This law came into force on August 10, 2018.
