Obtaining documents from Russia
If you reside within the consular district of the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Sydney, which includes New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania, you may obtain documents from the Russian Federation on demand through our office.
It may take approximately 6 months to obtain your document from Russia.
To proceed with obtaining documents from Russia you should submit to the Consulate in person the following documents:
- Two filled-out (in Russian) questionnaire on obtaining documents available for downloading from the right menu of this page;
- Your passport.
The fee is 105 AUD (foreign citizens) and 60 AUD (Russian Federation citizens) for each document on demand. Please note that we accept bank cheques, credit/savings cards and money orders payable to the Consulate General of Russia. The consulate will not refund any fees acquired even if the documents or requested information are not found.
We do not process requests for such documents as military identifications, labor books, driver’s licenses, inquiries of family status, evaluations, and personal cases from Russian institutions. We do not process requests for documents if they are not in the inquirer’s name or not valid at the present time (for example, you cannot request a birth certificate of a person who is deceased or a marriage certificate of someone who is divorced).
To request duplicates of documents from educational institutions we recommend that you address your inquiries directly to those institutions.
Admission is by appointment.
The Consulate General may ask you for additional documents.
