Obtaining Work Permits for Foreign Employees
Every foreigner must obtain a working visa and a work permit to stay and work legitimately in the Russian Federation.
A working visa is a document enabling a foreigner to enter the territory of the Russian Federation for the purpose of working there. A working visa is issued for a maximum term of one year on the basis of a work permit.
The work permit is the document confirming the right of a foreign employee to temporally work in Russia and is issued within the set quotas (the set quotes are not used for foreigners who are qualified specialists). A work permit must be obtained every year. The basis for obtaining it is the permission to hire foreign employees obtained by a company.
The permission to hire foreign employees is issued to a company for one year and stipulates the number of foreign employees that the company may hire during this year.
