Foreigners who have close relatives with Russian citizenship are allowed to apply for private long-stay visas valid for up to 1 year on the basis of written applications from the above mentioned relatives. Foreigners will not have to leave the territory of Russia each three months to reserve the right to obtain Russian visa.

Close relatives are spouses, parents, children, siblings, grandparents and grandchildren possessing Russian citizenship.
