Russia Dual Citizens Mandatory Registration: How?

A question for Russian dual citizens only:

As you may know, gay-bashing, God-loving hardliners in the Russian government succeeded this year in passing the law that requires every Russian citizen who is also a permanent resident or citizen of another country to share this information with the migration service by October 4, 2014. Those who live abroad can do it later when they visit Russia (within 60 days of their arrival, even if their trip lasts one day). From what it seems, however, no one can offer any information on how to notify the authorities.

The Moscow Times offers some details in English: http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/a...ip/504769.html

Some Russian paper offers more information (in Russian):
http://www.rg.ru/2014/08/05/grajdanstvo-site-dok.html

Still, the whole process remains murky and leaves millions of Russians living abroad at risk of violating the law. If anyone has any information about the process, please share it here.

I have no idea but www.expat.ru might be a better place to explore for the answer.

My wife was watching one of the most boring press conferences of all time. Once the dreary main speakers had finished their spiel, the questions from the audience began. They were so long and meandering that the microphone battery died.


Anyway, the answer is fill in a form at the UFMS or any Pochta.....just like the new and improved foreigner registration process.
