New amendments relating to foreign citizens and stateless persons
The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation has recognized Administrative regulations for the provision of State services for issuing foreign citizens and stateless persons residency permits in Russia as invalid in a point regarding issuance of a residence permit to a foreign citizen against whom the decision on acquiring Russian citizenship has been revoked after obtaining a temporary residence permit in the Russian Federation.
The Supreme Court declared this item of the Administrative Regulations invalid due to the fact that it establishes the requirement for the individual for whom the decision on acquiring Russian citizenship was revoked to renew a temporary residence permit in the Russian Federation in order to subsequently obtain a residence permit in the Russian Federation.
We remind you that Article 8 of the Federal Law dated July 25, 2002 №115 stipulates that during the period of validity of the temporary residence permit and in case there are legal grounds, a foreign citizen may at his or her request be granted a residence permit, and upon obtaining a residence permit, a foreign citizen requires to reside in the Russian Federation not less than one year on the basis of a temporary residence permit.
