New migration rules for foreign nationals in Russia 

February, 2023 - Irina Anyukhina, Margarita Egiazarova, ALRUD Law Firm

Dear Colleagues,

Due to changes to the migration law that took effect on 29 December 2021 and have been modified several times since then, ALRUD has updated the checklist below. This checklist will be useful for foreign nationals, company managers, HR directors, compliance officers, as well as heads of legal departments and other persons interested in or responsible for hiring foreign workers in Russia. The checklist includes a description of the main points related to the legislative amendments, as well as a list of possible consequences for the failure to comply with the regulations.

Please note that requirements may vary in practice according to the specific (local) migration authority and epidemiological situation.When referring to the checklist, please also double check the existing local requirements.
