MOSCOW, April 03. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Federal Migration Service (FMS) has proposed to annul labor patents of foreigners who did not find jobs in Russia two months after they arrived, Chief of the FMS law department Yelena Proshina said at a round- table meeting held at the Russian Public Chamber on Thursday.
A proposed amendment to the migration law annuls quotas for foreign citizens arriving from visa-free countries and consequently, annuls labor patents for such citizens, Proshina said.
But, "for purposes of continuing the existing preferences and in accordance with a resolution of a governmental commission we suggested extending labor patents to qualified and highly-qualified workers from visa-free countries, students and key personnel. Most of the revenues from patent sale will be contributed to regional budgets which are to determine a patent's cost depending on the situation on the labor market."
"We asked to consider a possibility of annulment of the patents of foreign citizens if an employer provides no notification about their employment to FMS two months after they arrive," Proshina said.
