Amendments have been made to the rules for conducting fingerprint registration of foreign citizens on the basis of Federal Law No. 498-FZ, dated December 31, 2017 "On Amending Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation Concerning the Maintenance of State Fingerprint Registration in the Russian Federation."
Thus, in the Russian Federation, state fingerprint registration is carried out as it pertains to citizens of the Russian Federation, foreign citizens and stateless persons who have reached the age of six.
In addition, foreign citizens and stateless persons who apply for temporary residency permits in the Russian Federation or make an application for the issuance of residency permits without obtaining temporary residence permits in the Russian Federation are subject to compulsory state fingerprint registration.
