Students from countries with a visa regime, who are going to study at TSU, crossing the state border of the Russian Federation, must send the information about the time and date of arrival to the International Division by e-mail: studentcenter@ums.tsu.ru no later than two days! before arrival.

If a student plans to check in to a dormitory/Student Residential Complex, he/she should go through self-isolation until the PCR test result, which must be obtained within 72 hours (3 days) from the moment of arrival in Tomsk. In case of a negative result, the student is checked into a dormitory/Student Residential Complex. If a positive result is obtained, the student goes through self-isolation until a negative retest result is obtained.
The student may:

– go through self-isolation on his/her own (rented apartment, friends’ apartment, hostel, hotel).

In case of self-isolation in the TSU Isolation ward, the PCR test will be done at the expense of the university. In case of self-isolation on his/her own – at the student’s expense
