Regarding changes in the procedure for issuing a temporary residence permit and a residence permit, as well as an increase in state duty for issuing a residence permit

10.07.2019

The State Duma passed the draft law in the first reading, it is planned to increase the state duty for issuing residence permits to foreign citizens from 3500 rubles to 5000 rubles.

Also, the bill is currently in its second reading, which proposes to issue temporary residence permits for a number of new categories of foreign citizens without taking into account quotas. The draft law also provides for the expansion of the list of applicants, foreign citizens, who will be able to obtain a residence permit without having previously obtained a temporary residence permit.

It is also planned to introduce amendments related to the introduction of an indefinite residence permit, except in cases when it is issued to highly qualified specialists and their family members (for the period of validity of the work permit).
