NOVO-OGARYOVO, April 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to consider permitting immigrants staying in Russia with educational visas to get employed outside the places of their study.
The request to consider this matter was made during the president’s meeting with students, postgraduates and teachers of Baltic Federal University.
“People who came to Russia to study and stay here with educational visas now have the right to work in educational establishments where they study,” the president said. “As to other areas of activity, it is a more complicated matter,” he said. “This concerns not only our compatriots. It will be the common rule applying to all immigrants,” Putin added.
“This needs thinking over. I do assure you that I will give an instruction to my colleagues in the Presidential Administration and in the government. We will think of this,” the president said.
He believes Russia should use the positive experience of the states that give the preferential regime of work and of receiving citizenship to people having professions a country’s economy needs.
