Labour market access
On 16 June 2014, the State Duma, the Lower House of the Russian Parliament, adopted at first reading Draft Bill 535567-6. It proposes the current monitoring of the labour migration though quotas to be replaced by patents, depending on the migrants' labour activity. The migrant's application shall be accompanied by:
The patent's term will be from one month to one year. A patent for more than one month will be issued only when there is a labour contract for the corresponding period. A patent gives a foreigner the right to work in only one region.
This legal amendment entered into force as of 1 January 2015 after having been approved by the State Duma, the Federation Council (the Upper House of the Russian Parliament), and the President of the Russian Federation.
