Who can enter?

At the moment, entry to Russia is possible for all foreign citizens arriving for the purpose of “study”.

Entry requirements

For students from visa countries, inform the university at least 7 days before entry about the planned date of arrival in Russia for training by e-mail: invitationletter[at]susu[dot]ru , applicant[at]susu[dot]ru . In the event of force majeure circumstances, the notification period may be shorter and such cases are considered on an individual basis.

Before and after the entry

a) Arrive and check in at the place of residence (university dormitory or apartment/hotel/other). For first-year students and students of the sub-faculty, the place of arrival is to determine the dormitory No. 3 of the SUSU campus (79 Sonya Krivoy Street).

b) On the first working day, contact the  Immigration Services, in Room 514 of the SUSU Main University Building (for visa countries) or the Passport Service of hostel No. 7 (for visa-free countries) for migration registration.

c) Issue a medical insurance policy – in Room 514 of the SUSU Main University Building, Immigration Services.

The estimated cost of a medical insurance policy is from 3000 to 5500 rubles (depending on the types of medical care).

Visa processing

For us to issue an invitation for entry for foreign citizens from visa countries, you must:

If a student arrives on the territory of the Russian Federation, but does not reach SUSU within 7 days and does not get in touch, he may be denied registration for migration registration and visa extension.
