Registration of Foreign Citizens on the Territory of the Russian Federation

Regarding the obtaining of visas for foreign citizens to enter the Russian Federation within the framework of the RTD project in the Far East

23.08.2019

The Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation has proposed a number of amendments to the legislation in order to simplify the procedure for obtaining visas of foreign nationals who work as participants in the investment project of the Far East's advanced development territory (hereinafter referred to as RDT).

According to the amendments, the basis for obtaining a visa for a foreign citizen will be an invitation from a resident of the RTD or the free port of Vladivostok, in the case of an employment contract between them.

The bill also envisages simplifying the procedure for obtaining a multiple-entry business visa.
A foreign representative or employee of a foreign company planning to conclude an investment agreement with a resident of the Free Port of Vladivostok or the Far East RTD will be issued a multiple-entry business visa for a period of up to 1 year.

If the investment agreement has already been concluded, the foreign citizen and his family members will be granted a business visa for the term of the investment agreement, but for no more than 3 years.

The period of consideration of the application in both cases will also be no more than five days.
The reason for the reduction of the period of stay of a foreign citizen in Russia will be the fact of expiration of the investment agreement with the foreign company or its termination.

At the same time, the company must notify the internal affairs bodies of the completion or termination of the investment agreement no later than within 3 working days.
