Dear foreign students (those who arrived to Russia after Dec 29, 2021)

Please, be informed that on December 29, 2021, Federal Law No. 274-FZ dated July 1, 2021 “On Amendments to the Federal Law “On the Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation” was put into force.

In accordance with the provisions of this Law, foreign citizens arriving in the Russian Federation for a period of more than 90 days are required to undergo medical examination, fingerprint registration and photographing within 90 calendar days from the date of entry into the Russian Federation.

It will not be possible to extend the period of stay of a foreign citizen on the territory of the Russian Federation without a medical examination certificate and a fingerprint registration document. The student will be required to leave the territory of the Russian Federation.

Medical examination of foreign citizens is carried out on a paid basis (medical examination costs about 7,480 rubles) at the address: 3b Letnyaya street

Mandatory fingerprint registration and photographing are carried out free of charge at the Migration Department of the Leningradskiy district of Kaliningrad at the address: 16 Butkova street, room 8

For fingerprint registration, pls, have the following docs:

  1. Passport

If you have any questions about taking a medical examination and fingerprinting, please visit the International Relations Office (room 221 of the main KSTU building) from 10.00 to 15.00 or call 995-330.

International students are obliged to have a voluntary health insurance policy (VHI) when enrolling in Russian universities for studying or internship.

Purchase of a voluntary medical insurance policy (VHI) for a foreign citizen is a necessary condition for staying in the Russian Federation. Medical assistance to foreign citizens is provided in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation:

1. Federal Law of June 28, 1991 No. 1499-1 "On medical insurance of citizens in the Russian Federation."

3. Resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation dated 06.03.2013 No. 186 "On approval of the rules for the provision of medical care to foreign citizens on the territory of the Russian Federation".

The lack of a medical insurance policy is a violation of the migration legislation of the Russian Federation and entails imposition of penalties (a fine of 2,000 to 5,000 rubles).

A foreign student must have a medical policy valid in the Russian Federation during the entire period of study at the university. The insurance period is one year. After the expiration of the validity period of the medical policy, a foreign student is obliged to purchase a new medical policy within three working days.

The policy must include the following points:
