MOSCOW, December 12 (Itar-Tass) — Foreign passports should be mandatory for all nationals, including those from CIS member-states, to enter Russia as of 2015, President Vladimir Putin said in his state-of-the-nation address on Wednesday.
“No later than in 2015 the entry to Russia should be permitted only by foreign passports, not domestic ones,” he said. “I ask the relevant ministries to study this issue with their partners in the CIS.”
Putin emphasized that “no problems should be created for anyone” and stressed the need to provide necessary financial and technical support.
“At the same time the current rules – maximally simplified rules for crossing the border and staying in the country – will remain effective within the framework of the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space,” he said.
