Regarding the possibility of obtaining documents abroad for receiving patent to work in Russia
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia plans to withdraw the preparation of necessary documents by foreign citizens (mainly from the CIS countries) outside the Russian Federation, in the country of citizenship of such foreign citizens, with the aim of speeding up the procedure for issuing a work patent, as well as excluding possible violators from entering Russia.
In order to be able to apply for a patent, foreign citizens will have to pass the following exams in advance:
• Russian language,
• History of Russia,
• Fundamentals of Russian legislation.
For the purpose of checking the absence of circumstances preventing the entry of foreign citizens into the Russian Federation, it is planned to use the resources of the passport and visa service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia.
