Registration of Foreign Citizens on the Territory of the Russian Federation

Regarding the decline in the share of foreign employees by economic activity


The Ministry of Labor of Russia presented the draft resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation "On the Establishment in 2019 of the Allowable Share of Foreign Employees Used by Economic Entities Performing Certain Economic Activities on the Territory of the Russian Federation." According to this project in 2019, the permissible share of foreign employees, used by business entities, involved in construction on the territory of the Russian Federation can be set at 80% of the total number of employed employees.  

It is not excluded that, the share of employees who are employed in land passenger transport and road freight transport will be reduced.

As in 2018, it was proposed to exclude the employment of foreign employees in the retail trade of medicines in specialized stores (pharmacies), in non-stationary trading facilities and markets, as well as other trade outside of stores, tents and markets.

In addition, it is planned that the restriction in the sphere of vegetable growing will not be applied only in relation to economic entities in the Astrakhan region and Primorsky Krai. This year, Krasnodar, Stavropol, Khabarovsk Territories, as well as Astrakhan, Volgograd, Voronezh, Lipetsk, Moscow, Rostov and Saratov regions have been exempted from its operation (clause 2 of the RF Government Resolution # 1467).

Regarding the restrictions for organizations in the construction industry, it is expected that those will not be extended to business entities in the Khabarovsk Territory, the Amur Region and Moscow.
