The decision to refuse to issue temporary residence permits to foreign citizens is due to the fact that this institution is ineffective. About this agency TASS told in the press center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The department explained that often migrants receive them to legalize labor activity in the country. Also, the Ministry of Internal Affairs noted that this permit is an unnecessary bureaucratic procedure for foreigners who plan to obtain full Russian citizenship.
The corresponding bill became known on July 9. Instead of temporary residence permits, the Ministry of Internal Affairs proposes to make three migration regimes of stay in Russia. Among them – the regime of short-term stay – no more than 90 days during the year, the regime of long-term stay – more than 90 days, without obtaining a permanent residence permit and the regime of permanent residence, which will operate indefinitely.
Earlier it was reported that migrants staying in Russia will be required to receive a single document with an electronic carrier, which will serve as an identity card within the country. The document will be valid for ten years, then it will need to be replaced. In addition, it will be necessary to replace it in the event of a change of surname, first name, patronymic, date of birth, gender in case of loss of citizenship.
