RUSSIA: Technical Problems at Moscow Migration Office

The Moscow Migration Department in Sakharovo has recently refused to accept a number of work permit applications for technical reasons.

In addition, occasional rejections have taken place when applying to local migration offices for address registration, for employees who previously obtained work permits at the Moscow Migration Department in Sakharovo.

What to expect

  • The Migration Department in Sakharovo may temporarily refuse to accept work permit applications without prior warning.
  • Local migration offices may refuse to process address registrations for employees who previously obtained work permits at the Moscow Migration Department in Sakharovo, on the grounds that there is no record of the employee’s work permit in the database.

Our advice

To support address registration at a local migration office, a certificate should be obtained from the Moscow Migration Department in Sakharovo, confirming work permit issuance and collection. Obtaining a certificate may take several business days.
