Procedure for obtaining residence permits will be simplified

The government of the Russian Federation proposes to make a residence permit indefinite, unless it is issued to highly qualified specialists and their family members (for the duration of the work permit).

In addition, it is planned:

1) to reduce the period for issuing a temporary residence permit (from six months to four);

2) to expand the amount of foreign citizens who can obtain a residence permit without obtaining a temporary residence permit;

3) to revise the list of persons to whom a temporary residence permit may be issued outside the approved quota;

4) to expand the list of persons who are exempt from proof of proficiency in Russian language, knowledge of history and the foundations of the legislation of the Russian Federation when applying for a temporary residence permit or residence permit.
