Students who enter Russia to study at SibMed must be registered within 7 business days at the Migration Office of the Administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia (Upravlenie po voprosam migracii UMVD Rossii po Tomskoi oblasti).
For migration registration (hereinafter referred to as registration) the following documents must be submitted:

We advise students to keep the registration coupon for the entire permitted period of stay in the Russian Federation in the passport along with the migration card and not to loose it.
In case there are any questions, Institute of International Education can be consulted.
In case you:
