!!! Wish to spend several days in Moscow before travelling
to Yaroslavl ???
If for personal reasons you wish to spend several days in Moscow
before travelling to Yaroslavl by train, you should bear in mind the Russian legal
requirement that foreigners must register with the local authorities within 3 working
days of their arrival in Russia. To prove the date of your arrival keep your ticket
with you all the time!!! If you are not going to arrive in Yaroslavl in time to fulfil
this requirement, you will need to register in Moscow or whichever town you are staying
in (all the hotels have a right to register foreigners). Failure to do so is considered
a serious offence, and if stopped on the street by the police for a document check
and you had not registered in the required period, you could be taken to the police
station for questioning and fined about 3500 roubles. If however you arrive in Yaroslavl
in time to be registered with the 3 working day period, YRLC will carry out the necessary
registration for you.
If you have any queries, want more information, or are interested
in booking a course at YRLC, please contact us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
