Regarding the new procedure for banning entry to Russia of foreign citizens
This procedure for banning foreign citizens from entering the Russian Federation was approved by the Government of the Russian Federation. The new procedure made it possible to unify the rules and expand the number of departments that can add foreign citizens to the list of "undesirable".
The following departments are included in this list:
• Ministry of Internal Affairs;
• Federal security service;
• Ministry of Defense;
• Foreign Intelligence Service;
• Foreign Ministry;
• Federal Penitentiary Service;
• Federal Customs Service;
• Rosfinmonitoring(Federal Finance Monitoring Service).
At the discretion of the departments, a period is set for which a foreign citizen is included in the list of "undesirable". At the same time, the decision to refuse entry must be made within no more than 1 month from the date of direct identification and recording of the circumstances that are the basis for such a decision, and is immediately conveyed to the foreign citizen.
The reason for refusal of entry is most often repeated administrative violations or exceeding the terms of stay in the Russian Federation.
