IMPACT – MEDIUM
The Russian government announced that it would implement nine “non-working days” from Oct. 30 to Nov. 7. The non-working period may affect visa application processing and immigration services.
Background: The “non-working days” regime was first implemented in March 2020 and lasted for a month. During that time, the acceptance of immigration documents was significantly limited and carried out using electronic resources or by preliminary appointment.
BAL Analysis: The decision to institute nationwide “non-working days” is intended to slow the spread of COVID-19. Individuals should check with their local authorities to find location specific details. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
