RUSSIA SUSPENDED GRANTING MIGRATION CARDS TO FOREIGNERS

Granting migration cards to the foreigners temporarily residing in the territory of Russia was suspended since 1 October, the Russian visa and registration departments said. Now, the migration cards will be given only in crossing the borders.

The date is not eventually defined, because the migrants looking for job in Russia return back just in fall, Deputy foreign minister of the Russian federation Alexander Chekalin said. In addition, when they will come back they can get migration cards.

Migration cards were introduced to register foreign citizens who come to Russia. The card includes notes on their place, occupancy, and move in Russia.

Hitherto, approximately 8,5 million migration cards have been given to the foreigners, RF MFA told.
