Registration of Foreign Citizens on the Territory of the Russian Federation

Term of notification of dual citizenship will be extended


We remind you that until October 4 Russian citizens were obliged to report that they have foreign citizenship or residency in another country. Due to the fact that many people do not have time to do so because they are abroad, the notification deadline will be extended. Council of the State Duma in the near future will be determined with the consideration of amendments on this subject. If the bill is passed, the Russians are abroad will not have to interrupt their studies or a business trip, or else pay a fine - they will be able to report on their citizenship after returning to the territory of the Russian Federation.

We remind you that the concealment of dual citizenship carries criminal liability in the form of:
•    A fine of up to 200 thousand rubles or in the amount of wages;
•    Other income of the convicted person for a period up to one year;
•    Or in the form of compulsory work for up to 400 hours.
