Russian authorities will not allow foreign nationals to depart the country if their visa has expired; travelers must wait until a new visa is approved.

If you’re staying for more than 7 working days you must register with the Crimean branch of the Federal Migration Service. Most major hotels will do this automatically. If you’re staying in private accommodation the owner of the property must do this for you. If you are visiting multiple destinations, you must register with Russian authorities within seven working days (including arrival and departure days) of your arrival at each separate destination. Failure to register will result in a fine, and you could experience problems when trying to re-enter Russia at a future date.
Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months after the expiry date of your visa.
You must complete a migration card upon your arrival in Crimea Russia. These cards are usually distributed on flights and trains entering Russia or at points of entry.

International cruise passengers may enter Russia without a visa for up to 7 days, provided that they are accompanied by a guide with all of the authorizations required by the Russian authorities.
