On 25 July 2008 a new Administrative Regulation came into
force issuing conclusions with regard to attracting a foreign
work force and issuing work permits for foreign citizens .
The new Regulation was approved by Order No 1 of the Federal
Migration Service; Order No 4 of the Ministry of Health and
Social Development of the Russian Federation; Order No 1 of the
Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation; and the State
Fishery Committee of the Russian Federation on 11 January 2008
(registered by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian
Federation on 9 April 2008 No 11480). The Regulation was
officially published in the "Bulletin of normative acts of
the federal executive bodies" No 28 on 14 July 2008.
The Regulation introduces a new approach for the process of
obtaining conclusions with regard to attracting a foreign work
force and issuing work permits for foreign citizens. According
to the Regulation, the two-step procedure for obtaining
conclusions with regard to attracting a foreign work force and
obtaining work permits will be replaced by a
"one-window" system. The Federal Migration Service,
having received all the documents from the applicants, will
internally send requests to the Federal Employment Service.
The term for obtaining work permits will remain the same and
should not exceed 30 days.
The practical side of implementing the new Regulation might
take some as there are a lot of internal changes to be applied
to the Federal Migration Service.
