Draft Federal Law “Concerning the Introduction of Amendments to the Federal Law “Concerning Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation” and declaration as inoperative of subsection “g” section 5 article 1 of the Federal Law dated May 19, 2010 No. 86-FZ «Concerning the Introduction of Amendments to the Federal Law “Concerning Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation” and separate legislation acts of the Russian Federation” (hereinafter – draft law) was developed in order to implement section 3 of the minutes of meeting at Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation dated March 14 2011. No. VP-P13-10pr concerning quickened transition to deliverance of state service for issuing work permits to highly skilled foreign specialists in electronic form. The draft law calls for amendments to the Federal Law “Concerning Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation”, which authorize employers and requestors of works (services) to submit to FMS of Russia and its territorial institutions requests for recruitment of highly skilled foreign specialists, applications for prolongation of period of validity of work permits given to these specialists in a form of electronic document with the use of information and telecommunication networks of public service, particularly the Internet network, including Common Government Services Portal of the Russian Federation. Employers and requestors of works (services) will also be able to submit to the previously specified institutions in a form of electronic document notices about fulfillment of obligations related to the payment of wages and termination of employment contracts or civil-law agreements executed with highly skilled specialists, notices about granting these employees leave without pay for periods over one calendar month within a year. The draft law calls for setting a standard, according to which employers and ship owners will be able to submit in an electronic form all documents that are needed to receive authorization for recruitment and usage of foreign specialists in the crew of Russian sea crafts. In this respect it is proposed to bring this standard into force from January 1, 2013. The draft law suggests to free from acquiring work permits those foreign citizens, who temporarily reside in the Russian Federation, because according to article 2 of Federal Law “Concerning Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation” this group of foreign citizens cannot be considered foreign employees. Currently foreign citizens, who temporarily reside in the Russian Federation and engage in labor activities, receive authorization documents in compliance with quota for issuing permits for temporary residence and quota for issuing work permits. Such format appears to be an excessive administrative barrier which complicates the process of integration of said group of foreign citizens into the Russian society. At the same time compulsory pension, medical and social insurance applies to those foreign citizens, who temporarily reside in the Russian Federation. Besides according to section 5 of article 13 of Federal Law “Concerning Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the Russian Federation” foreign citizens who temporarily reside in the Russian Federation have no right to work beyond the limits of the subject of the Russian Federation where work permits or residence permits were issued.
