The Russian government will require fingerprinting, photographing and medical exams for foreign nationals intending to work or stay in Russia beginning Dec. 29.
Fingerprinting and photographing:
Additional Information: Dependents who intend to stay in Russia longer than 90 continuous days will be subject to the new law. The law exempts citizens of Belarus, children under six, and employees and family members of intergovernmental organizations or foreign diplomatic missions (subject to reciprocity). If fingerprinting, photographing or medical examinations are not performed, officials will reduce the amount of time foreign nationals can stay in the country.
BAL Analysis: The new law complicates the work and immigration process for foreign nationals by requiring in-person procedural steps. Once the law is in effect, foreign nationals will need to satisfy the requirements in order to remain in Russia without penalty.
