stations in Tomsk are located near each other on the same station square), or by train from the
railway station of Novosibirsk.
Other things being equal, or if you travel from Moscow or transit through Moscow, we recommend that

We draw the attention of foreign participants of the Workshop about the strict fulfillment of your stay
within Russia, in agreement with your visa. Leaving Russia with an expired visa will result to serious
obstacles on the side of the migration service. Extension of short-term visa is impossible.
Secondly note that in entering in Russia you will receive an immigration card (a small piece of paper
containing important informations whose size is, approximately, the same as of your passport). This
document is required during your stay in Russia and shall be requested by the Hotel service. You
need to deliver this document in the immigration service to leave Russia.
