Skilled foreign workers will be issued permanent residence permits more quickly than other employees under new regulations released by the Interior Ministry (Order No. 846) and effective Jan. 1, 2018.
Under the new regulations, authorities must issue permits to skilled foreign workers within three months from the receipt of the application. The requirement also applies to family members and other dependents of skilled foreign workers. Other foreign employees must receive permanent residence permits within six months of application.
To qualify for permanent residence permits, skilled foreign workers must submit application forms, identification documents, and employment contracts to the authorities. An application can be denied if false or incorrect application documents are filed or if the applicant was extradited from Russia once within the five previous years or twice or more within the 10 previous years or has been found guilty of criminal or administrative offenses, complicity in terrorist acts, financing of terrorism, or other acts that threatened Russia's national security.
