Registration of Foreign Citizens on the Territory of the Russian Federation

New grounds for implementation on labor activity by foreign citizens

20.02.2017

Russian Interior Ministry proposes to amend the laws of the Russian Federation and establish the following terms:

• On the need to present a migration card

Foreign citizens  will be required to present a migration card to the employer upon concluding  an  employment contract, with the exception of foreign citizens  who are citizens of the Union  formed by Russia and Belarus;

• On the need to conclude an employment contract

A foreigner  who is not required to obtain a work permit or a patent in order to be employed is not entitled to work without an employment contract or a civil contract for works (services);

• About the migration card identifying the term “employment” as the objective of entry.

An employer has no right to recruit a foreign citizen for employment that does not require a work permit or a patent in order to be employed without signing an employment or a civil contract for the provision of works (services), as well as in the event that the foreign citizen on his/her migration card does not identify “work” as the purpose for entry into the Russian Federation.

• On the establishment of administrative responsibility for foreign citizens.

Implementation of labor activity in the Russian Federation by a foreign citizen, who does not require a work permit or a patent in order to be employed without concluding with the employer an  employment contract or a civil contract for the provision of works (services) would entail the imposition of an administrative fine in the amount of  2000 to 5000 rubles with administrative exclusion outside the Russian Federation or without it;

• On establishment of administrative liability for legal persons.

The recruitment of  a foreign citizen for the purposes of employment  in the Russian  Federation, who is not required to obtain a work permit or a patent, without signing an employment  or a civil contract for the provision of works (services) would entail the imposition of an administrative fine in the following amounts:

• for citizens - in the amount of 2 000 to 5 000 rubles,
• for officials - from 25 000 to 50 000 rubles,
• for legal entities - from 250 000 to 800 thousand rubles or administrative suspension of activity for a period of 14 to 90 days.
