If you plan to travel to the Russian Federation you will need a visa. If you do not have a visa, you will be unable to travel. To acquire a visa you need to fulfill certain requirements and this requires studying for a full-length educational course in a foreign country. The stipulations are that the individual must hold a position in the education industry in a foreign country and that they must have an active bank account and be able to prove that they are in possession of a passport and a current residential address in the Russian Federation. Once these requirements are satisfied you can apply for a visa. The next step is to fill in an application form and return it to the Federal Migration Service.

An individual with UFA status is someone who has met the specified conditions and who is allowed to reside in the Russian Federation for a limited period of three months. They are then able to enter the country for the restricted period only. Once in the Russian Federation an individual is granted permission to stay in the country for a further restricted period. An unrestricted free agent is someone who can sign an EU permanent residence card, but cannot work in the Russian Federation or receive benefits or assistance from Russian authorities while they are so eligible.

A UFA holder has the right of unlimited rights. This means that they can live and work in the country without restrictions. A UFA holder also has the right to settle in a property in the Russian Federation and can apply for Russian citizenship. There is a time limit for applying for citizenship so an individual needs to do this before their card is valid.

After a three month period from the date of issue of your UFA card, you may need to apply for a tourist card. These cards are valid for a specific period of time each year. You will then be able to travel to other countries and cities within the Russian Federation for an additional period of time. If you have an UFA card and wish to work in the Russian Federation, you will need a visa. This visa is different to the one you would apply for in Canada and has different requirements.

An individual who wishes to work as a restricted free agent in Russia must also show proof of a residence in Russia. A copy of a driver’s license and a copy of a utility bill will be required. An employment agreement between you and the club or organization you are working for must be obtained and signed. Before you apply for your UFA card make sure that you have all these documents in order so that you can begin to apply as soon as possible. The process of obtaining your UFA visa in Russia is not difficult but you need to be careful.
