In the Primorsky Territory, it was forbidden to attract foreign citizens working on the basis of patents in the field of transport. The restriction will come into force from the year 2020.

According to the press service of the coastal administration, the ban will affect foreign drivers of city and suburban buses, trams, trolleybuses and taxis. An exception is made only for those who work on tourist and sightseeing routes, as well as on rented vehicles.

More than 300 foreigners who have previously received a patent for work in the region will fall under the restriction. The authorities are confident that this measure will optimize the labor market in the region and give priority to the employment of Russian citizens.

Unions said that revise patent grant foreign workers need other professions as well. They note that it is difficult to work in Primorye: somewhere, employees are transferred to part-time work, and somewhere else they are completely reduced.
