Registration of Foreign Citizens on the Territory of the Russian Federation

The hosting party will be able to remove foreign citizens from migration registration


The list of grounds for the hosting party for removing foreign citizens from migration registration on their own initiative has been expanded in accordance with The Federal Law # 257-FZ, dated July 29, 2018 "On Amendments to Articles 8 and 23 of the Federal Law" On Migration Registration of Foreign Citizens and Stateless Persons in the Russian Federation" pertaining to the removal of a foreign citizen or stateless person from the place of residence in the Russian Federation."

This list includes the fact of the departure of a foreign citizen from the place of residence; on this basis the hosting party can remove the foreign citizen from the register by the place of residence by sending the appropriate notification.

As it is well known, earlier the hosting party was not entitled to remove a foreign citizen from the register, even if there was no longer any contact with him/her, or the employment relationship was terminated.

Nevertheless, it can be subject to recovery if the foreign citizen does not live in the place of registration.

Thus, the reliability of migration reporting will increase, due to the fact that the hosting party can act based on objective information about the presence of the migrant, and the authorized body can take measures to establish the actual location of that foreign citizen.
