If im staying only six days in Russia do I need to register my visa?

+1 vote
I will be in St. Perersburg for a total of six days and will not be staying at a hotel even though my tourist visa says I am a tourist staying at a hotel. I dont want to waste time registering my visa if I will be there for less then 7 days. Do I need to register my tourist visa to be able to go back home via airport, or will they give me trouble?

No, you need to register only if you're staying 7 days or longer.
