MOSCOW, November 15, (ITAR-TASS) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday signed a decree tightening the migration regime in Sochi during the Olympic Games it will host in 2014.
The decree says these restrictions will be in place between January 7 and March 21, 2014. It says that the Russian nationals arriving in the city for temporary residence as well as those arriving as permanent residents will be obliged to appeal for registration no later than three days after the arrival. It says this does not concern people staying at hotels, health resorts, camping areas, tourist camps and hospitals.
Their registration must be done on the same day, while Federal Migration Service agencies cannot be notified about the term and place of their staying via the Internet or by mail.
The term of temporary residence of foreign nationals, who don’t participate in the Olympic Games and arrive on visa-free terms, will make up no more than 30 days.
All these demands don’t concern the Russian and foreign nationals having Olympic IDs and accreditations, as well as documents confirming their right to visit Olympic facilities and a registration card.
