Migration and visa services

BBNP Law Firm provides services on migration and visa issues for foreign citizens wishing to work in Russia or arriving in Russia for business purposes. We also help to go through all the stages of registration when opening a business in Russia.

In accordance with the Federal Law No. 115 FZ dated July 25, 2007, foreign workers can be hired only if the employer has a permit to attract foreign workers and if the employee has a work permit. The term for issuing permits can be from 1 to 90 days. In some cases, when drawing up permits, the personal presence of a foreign citizen is required. Therefore, we recommend planning the employment of foreign specialists in advance.

Note that depending on the citizenship of the future employee, the procedure for attracting him to work can be simplified.

We help prepare permits for the following categories of citizens:

  • Foreign citizens from countries with a visa regime
  • Foreign citizens from countries with a visa-free regime provided by an agreement between the states
  • Highly qualified specialists (HQS)
  • Foreign citizens from countries with a visa-free regime

Migration services:

  • Obtaining a temporary residence permit
  • Obtaining a residence permit
  • Obtaining Russian citizenship.

We will help you calculate the timeframe from the date of filing the documents to the employee’s beginning of work in the company, organize the receipt of permits within the pre-agreed terms and help the company avoid financial losses due to unplanned actions.
