Visa support and Registration
All foreign citizens, coming to the Russian Federation and planning to stay in our country fore more than 7 (seven) days have to be registered at their place of residence. For the period of the Summer School we register you at our dormitory, after the end of the school you will have to get reregistered within 7 days.
In order to help you with the Russian visa to visit our Summer School we issue official invitations from our university. The dates of your invitation from the Northern Arctic Federal University will be for the period of the Summer School + 2 days before and 2 days after the school (to cover travel time). For our applicants from EU countries the invitation is made within several days after we file your documents (our Visa Support Form filled and a scanned copy of your passport). If you are not from an EU state, the process of issuing an invitation for you will take some more time (up to one month) and takes an additional sum of money (500 roubles = 10 Euro).
As soon as your invitation is ready we send you a scanned copy of it by e-mail. If the scanned copy is not enough for you, please, inform us in advance and we will send you the paper document via DHL.
For your convenience we have a group of volunteers (students of our Institute) who will provide you with individual support during your stay in Arkhangelsk for the Summer School. They will contact you and provide you with the information necessary for your arrival. The will meet you at the airport and organize the transport as well.
The tuition fee is paid in cash upon your arrival and after you have been assigned to a study group. The course fee does not cover travel costs, accommodation costs, lunch costs. The Russian visa is free for our Summer School students.
Payment is made in Russian roubles, that’s why you will need to exchange currency (the service is available in all local banks). Payment by bank transfer is not accepted.
