First-hand comment from our foreign colleague.


I came to Russia at the beginning of January and, therefore, had to undergo a medical examination and fingerprinting.
I had a medical check-up in the medical center at 18 Dokukin St., because you can take all the analyses there and there is no need to go to other institutions. The line (without an appointment, the principle of a live line) was already quite long at 10 o'clock in the morning, so it is advisable to come early. The staff is friendly and helpful, but if you do not speak Russian, it is worth bringing an interpreter.
I ended up spending 4 hours in the clinic, including 3 hours in line, the tests themselves were done within an hour.
I received the results in 7 working days in the same building.
For fingerprinting I decided to go to the migration center in Sakharovo. I arrived by public transportation at 8 am and was directed to Gate 1 (for work permit holders). It took me 1.5 hours to get a voucher, then another 2 hours before I could get fingerprinted and photographed. It takes 4-6 business days to get confirmation that all the documents have been submitted.
Including the drive there and back, the whole procedure took me 10 hours. The staff is friendly and diligent, but the process on site is very unclear.

Summary of the procedure


Let's summarize the order and steps of the above procedures:
1. Have your tests done at one (or several, in case one of the specialists/examination options is not available at the chosen center) of the medical centers listed above.
2. Receive test results from the appropriate medical center after 7 business days.
3. Get fingerprinted and photographed.
4. After all the procedures you will get a fingerprint card with. The information will be sent for registration to the information center of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow.
