Inviting Organizations and Individuals Must Ensure that Invited Foreigners Observe Russian Migration Law
The organization or individual who invites a foreign citizen to Russia is now obligated to make sure that that foreigner observes the migration law of the Russian Federation. In particular, the foreigner's activities in Russia must be compliant with the declared purpose of the visa. In addition, the inviting party should ensure the timely departure of the foreigner before the expiration of his or her visa. This is according to Federal Law No. 216-FZ of 19.07.2018 "On Amendments to Article 16 of the Federal Law" On the Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation."
The enforcement and implementation of this law will be decided by the Government of the Russian Federation.
The amendments will enter into force 180 days after their official publication.
