Organizations Illegally Registering Foreigners To Be Held Criminally Liable
Amendments have been introduced to define the consequences for “fictitious registration of a foreigner,” which was previously defined in a previous set of amendments. This concerns both temporary and permanent registration for foreigners and stateless persons at their place of residence in both residential and non-residential premises.
For fictitious registration of a foreigner, the perpetrator faces one of the following:
- a fine ranging from 100 to 500 thousand rubles or in the amount of the perpetrator's salary or other income for a period of up to three years;
- forced labor for up to three years with or without the deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or engage in certain activities for up to three years;
- imprisonment for up to three years with or without the deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions or engage in certain activities for up to three years.
