Russian Deputy PM Suggests New Migration Rules

Russia’s deputy prime minister has proposed new rules, which require migrant laborers to have health insurance and also limit how long they can stay in the country without a visa.

      Under proposals from Dmitry Rogozin, who heads the state border commission, migrants lacking a visa and a work permit will be permitted to stay in Russia for only up to 90 days within any six-month period.

      The suggestion to tighten rules for migrant laborers has followed the rising number of incidents linked to the public discontent over the numbers of foreigners in the capital.

      The Federal Migration Service also plans to establish an electronic identity card for migrant workers by 2015.

      There are currently over six million foreigners working in Russia, most of them are from former Soviet republics in Central Asia and the South Caucasus, and only two million of migrant workers are legally employed.
