MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Federation Council upper house of parliament has ratified on Wednesday a protocol to the Russian-Tajik agreement, extending to maximum three years the term of labor permits for Tajik nationals working in Russia,
The document was signed on October 29, 2013 in Moscow and was aimed at the development of cooperation on migration. In line with the protocol, labor migrants from Tajikistan will be able to have their labor permits issued for a term of no more than three years. They won’t need to leave Russia to have their labor permits extended.
According to the chairman of the Federation Council’s international affairs committee, Mikhail Margelov, ratification of the protocol will create more favorable labor conditions for Russian nationals in Tajikistan and Tajik nationals working in Russia, which is one of priorities in bilateral cooperation.
