Employers in Russia can hire foreign workers without required migration documents

Employers in Russia can currently hire foreign workers without the usual obligatory migration documents.


In accordance with the presidential Decree of 18 April 2020, employers that comply with the required sanitary and epidemiological measures will be able to hire both foreign nationals who arrived in Russia on a visa, but do not having work permits, and foreign nationals who arrived in Russia from visa-free countries who do not having migration ‘patents’. Employers that hire foreign nationals from visa countries will have permission to attract and employ foreign nationals.
