MOSCOW, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - Russia will toughen its migration policy soon, the Deputy Head of the Federal Migration Service (FMS), Elena Radochina, told a roundtable meeting at the Public Chamber on Tuesday.
“Russia will soon introduce tougher punishment for migrant workers, who exceeded a permit for 30 day stay in Russia,” she said adding that the Federal Migration Service had been taking active efforts to find those migrants who repeatedly violated Russia’s migration legislation.
“Since January 1, 2013, over 155 migrants have been deported from Russia and their entry to Russia will be strictly controlled,” Radochina said noting that in early 2014 a bill reforming temporary residence rules for migrants will enter into force. A residence permit will be issued to a migrant worker only when he/she shows its employment contract to the Federal Migration Service. Russia’s employment services are empowered to find employment for a migrant jobseeker, if no Russian citizen applies for this job for two months.
