Information on the lack of expiry date on an exit visa [RUS10433]

An official at the Consulate of Russia in Ottawa indicated in a telephone interview that exit visas are currently required for Russian nationals to travel abroad and that these visas are stamped in the travel passport (11 Mar. 1992). However, the official stated that there is no expiry date given on the visa nor was there an expiry date on exit visas issued in the past in the Soviet Union (Ibid.). The information provided by this official cannot currently be corroborated by the IRBDC.
