Bring Western know-how into Russia
Foreign-owned entities in Russia enjoy a valuable competitive advantage: they find it easier to attract and retain highly capable foreign specialists, ready to share their insights into cutting-edge technologies and business practices.
For many years, we have been inviting experts and talents from abroad, both ourselves and on behalf of our customers. We secure annual work permits for certain occupations that are exempt from quotas (e.g. Managing Director) and 3-year work permits for highly qualified specialists (HQS). For the latter, the main requirement is a gross annual income of 2 million roubles and above.
Our people have great experience with migration legislation, submitting the right documentation and working with the Russian Ministry of the Interior. We arrange work permits for citizens of all countries except the CIS.
Furthermore, recent changes to the law have greatly simplified the procedure for securing a residence permit (also: residency permit).
Reduced processing times, extended penalty waivers and a more generous annual quota are among these new, favourable changes. For further information, please look at our relevant insight page: “Changes to Residency Permits”.
We are also aware that, given the coronavirus outbreak, this is a time of great uncertainty. As the situation continues to change rapidly, we remain committed to answering your questions as promptly as possible and promise to stay on top of the most recent updates.
Our services include:
- residence permits;
- work permits;
- work visas;
- business and other non-resident visas.
