Immigration Law Definition

Migration requirements are primarily provided for by the Federal Law "On Russian citizenship,” Federal Law "On the Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation,” and the Federal Law “On the Migration Registration of Foreign Citizens and Stateless Persons in the Russian Federation.”

Russian immigration lawyers stay up-to-date with the current legislation developments and monitor peculiarities and minor changes in the procedures for obtaining work permits, residence permits, and citizenship issues.

Russian immigration lawyers work with companies and individuals in order to provide professional legal assistance in said complex area and to clarify details of the steps to follow in case performance of working function by non-resident is presumed on the territory of the Russian Federation or change of residence and/or citizenship for Russia is contemplated. Russian immigration lawyers need to cover a substantial range of matters including work permit, visa issues, employment and accommodation issues for non-residents in Russia, residence and temporary residence permits for foreign individuals, etc.

For these purposes Russian immigration lawyers need to closely liaise with the Chief department on migration issues (currently transferred to the administration of Russian Ministry of Interior), local departments of migration bodies, tax authorities where non-residents will need to register, accreditation centers for passing complex examination on knowledge of fundamental principles of the Russian language, history, and law, and medical institutions. Qualified lawyers usually build up relations with aforementioned authorities in order to deal with them to the best advantage of their client. 

Russian immigration lawyers possess necessary expertise and credentials to determine the particular procedure foreign individual will need to comply with depending on the purposes of his proposed stay on the territory of the Russian Federation:

• Receipt of a temporary residence permit along with migration registration in the case the individual would like to further have an opportunity to apply for a permanent residence permit and Russian citizenship.
• Receipt of a work visa and work permit for a non-resident employee of a Russian company: either for a highly qualified specialist (HQS) who undergoes a simplified procedure or another specialist entitled to apply for permit under quota-exempted rules due to managerial position.
• Receipt of single, double, or multi-entry business visas (up to 1 year validity) for foreigners representing a multinational holding and arriving in Russia for a couple of months to provide onsite training.

Non-compliance with the immigration regulations might induce consequences in the form of administrative liability, mostly fines up to 1,000,000 RUB (with possible administrative suspension of activities) for the legal entity and 75,000 RUB for company official, as well as up to 7,000 RUB for an individual with possible administrative expulsion from the territory of the Russian Federation.
