IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? The Russian government has expanded the list of employers who are allowed to hire Turkish nationals.
What does the change mean? The government has exempted designated companies from a ban on hiring Turkish nationals that was implemented in January.
Background: On Jan. 1, 2016, the government placed several restrictions on Turkish nationals, including a ban on Russian employers hiring Turkish nationals who were not already in an employment agreement as of the ban. The Russian government has now expanded the list of companies exempt from the ban. The full list is available here.
BAL Analysis: Employers should continue to track the status of Turkish employees in Russia for work permit expirations. In addition, the ban continues to apply to the visa waiver and thus requires that Turkish nationals obtain a visa to enter Russian territory.
