The representative office will help labour migrants to prepare all documents in their home country and get a work permit upon arrival to the Russian Federation.
The Passport and Visa Service Federal State Unitary Enterprise (FSUE) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation will open a representative office on the territory of the Republic of Tajikistan. FSUE General Director Sergei Mashin and Head of the Moscow branch of the Ministry of Labour, Migration and Employment of Tajikistan Zohir Mirzozoda had discussed this issue during a meeting, the Khovar News Agency reported on February 6.
Mashin said he had discussed the opening of a representative office in the Republic of Uzbekistan during his working visit to this country last week. The official noted that the opening of a representative office in Tajikistan would simplify migration procedures, reduce the time required to prepare employment authorisation documents and get a work permit.
In accordance with the procedure, labour migrants will submit all necessary documents in their home country and get a work permit within 5-7 days after arrival to Russia.
Mashin added that while foreign citizens were going through the work permit application process, the authorities would check if they had committed administrative offenses in the Russian Federation.
Noting that no new coronavirus cases had been registered in Tajikistan for a long time, Mirzozoda said medical examination and certification in COVID-19 met international standards.
