MOSCOW, April 4 (Itar-Tass) – Foreigners violating Russia’s legislation can be banned entry to Russia for 10 years, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told a Cabinet meeting that discusses a bill toughening entry and departure rules for foreign citizens.
He noted that this concerns foreign citizens who violated the legislation while staying in Russia and faced readmission and administrative deportation.
“If such cases are registered repeatedly, a foreign citizen will be unable to enter Russia for 10 years,” Medvedev said.
He added that such norms exist in legislations of many other countries.
“We want to see law-abiding citizens, who are in demand on our market, coming to us,” Medvedev said.
