Far Eastern Federal District approved quotas for temporary residence of foreigners
The Russian government has established a quota for temporary residence of foreigners in the Far Eastern Federal District for 2021. 3 quotas have been allocated to the Far East.
The order was signed by the head of the Russian Cabinet of Ministers Mikhail Mishustin. In total, next year, Russia will issue 39 temporary residence permits to foreigners and stateless persons. The figure for the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District varies from 325 people for Yakutia, Primorsky, Khabarovsk Territories and the Amur Region to 500 permits for the Jewish Autonomous Region and Chukotka.
According to the press service of the JAO government, from 2016 to 2020, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation for the Jewish Autonomous Region allocated such quotas for 200 people annually. The depletion of the quota ranged from 70% to 100% per year.
Since 2018, the number of requests for temporary residence has begun to decrease annually. The coronavirus pandemic has also made its own adjustments. In 2020, due to the imposed restrictions, requests dropped sharply. In the first half of the year, the quota was exhausted by about 9%.
For 2020, in some areas, the permissible share of foreigners remains unchanged from 2019... For example, in the construction industry - 80%.
