We inform you that from September 9, 2019, new forms of the migration reports and applications to be submitted by the companies employing foreign nationals will come to force.
The new forms were approved by the Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation¹. The following obligatory reporting forms are being changed, namely:
All reports submitted after September 9 should be prepared in a new form. Violation of the established form of the notifications may entail an administrative fine of up to RUB 1,000,000 or administrative suspension of the company’s activity for up to 90 days.
A new form is also being introduced for application on engagement of a highly qualified foreign specialist.
At the same time, notifications and applications submitted before September 9 in the old form will be valid. Repeated submission of such forms is not required.
We also remind you that the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation² confirmed that the timely submission of notifications in a non-established form is a violation of the requirements of the law and entails administrative liability.
