Registration & visas
The OVIR (Lenin) is at the back (southwest corner) of a building a block southeast of the City Administration Building. Go to the Inspector’s office (Room 4). Fees are paid at the AKB Bank.
Visa extensions can be given at the 4th floor of the City Administration Building for US$53. For reasons known only to the city’s bureaucracy the same visa extension is 600som in the oblast OVIR office (closed Tue, Thu & Sun) through a smaller entrance on the southern side of the same building.
