Foreign citizens with real estate will be able to register foreign citizens
The amendments are to be made to the law "On migration registration of foreign citizens and stateless persons in Russia" according to which foreign citizens who purchased real estate in Russia will be able to provide migration registration for other foreign citizens at the address of their residence.
We would like to remind you that at the moment foreign citizens do not have the right to register other foreign citizens on their residence, except for highly qualified specialists who are allowed to register their accompanying family members.
The amendments presented in the new draft law expand the circle of foreign citizens who have the right to act as a host party.
Foreign citizens will be able to register other foreign citizens at their residence, provided they comply with the law. The legality of the presence of the foreign citizens in the territory of the Russian Federation will be checked and there will be responsibility for fictitious registration.
Moreover, the draft provides the option for submitting a notification of arrival at the place of residence for foreign citizen via on-line public services portal.
