I want to ask about registration within seven days in each new city in Russia. I know there are a lot of people asking this question before but I really need more data about this. I would love to provide a bit more information about myself than ask for questions.
I’m from Taiwan. I really hope someone who has traveled in Russia more than two weeks could answer my question with your experiences.
So basically next year I am planning to live in Russia 90 days with business visa, and I don’t have friends over there. I basically want to live nearby Couchsurfing, or directly ask people if I could stay with them, because I don’t have that much of money to living hotel or live in hostel every day.
I was living in Vladivostok Russia for 30 days but when I left customs nothing happened -- customs never checked my registration. On top of that I googled, and a lot of people seemed to have the same situation as me: no one checked their ”within 7 days registration”; on the other hand, there are a bunch of people who are claiming that I must register or otherwise I will have big trouble.
Here are my questions:
Since I’m planning to live in different cities by hitchhiking, how can I register ”registration within 7 days stuff?”
Has anyone been stopped by police and had their registration checked?
Has anyone been traveling on a buiness visa like me as well?
How is the process of registration? Is it complicated and time consuming?
No one talk about the valid time for the registration; for example, if I was planning to stay in whatever which city for 10 days, but then I stayed for 20 days, do I need to register again? Even though I stay in the same city?
- Or is it so that with registration in a city, it doesn’t matter how many days you stay? It's just a proof that I’m actually visiting there?
