Vyacheslav Shport: it is necessary to postpone the entry into force of the law on examinations for migrants

The governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, Vyacheslav Shport, proposes to postpone the entry into force of the requirements for migrants to pass compulsory exams until next year - he said this, as Kommersant writes, at a meeting chaired by Far Eastern Deputy Prime Minister and Plenipotentiary Yuri Trutnev.

According to the head of the region, the region is experiencing a deficit of foreign labor, in particular, the construction industry suffered. "About 6 thousand people today are simply not enough to support the scale of construction", - the governor emphasized.

Also, Vyacheslav Shport noted that an agreement was signed with the DPRK on attracting foreign labor in several areas, in particular, in agriculture. As explained by EastRussia Director of the Testing Center in the region Lyudmila Tereshchenko, they may have problems in knowing the Russian language.

She also noted that to date about 1500 people have been tested, of which about 20% have not coped with the exams. Testing takes place in the four largest universities in the region. Certificates are issued on the basis of the Pacific State University.

In addition to construction and agriculture, Lyudmila Tereshchenko named the forest industry as a problem zone. However, according to her, the state of affairs can not be called an insurmountable obstacle. Those who want to work can take courses and take the test.

Note, however, that it takes about two weeks to complete the comprehensive testing and issue a certificate. If the testing fails, then the foreigner will have to undergo training, and its minimum period is another two weeks. And this despite the fact that under the new terms, foreign citizens must apply to the FMS for the issuance of permits for work within 30 days from the date of arrival. And if earlier at the end of the term he could legally stay on the territory of Russia for another 15 days, now if the period of stay is exceeded, the migrant faces a fine of 10 to 15 thousand rubles. The cost of certificates is also rather big: in the Khabarovsk Territory it varies from 5125 rubles for the elementary level to 6150 rubles for the IV level.

According to the regional Rosstat, last year the region had a positive balance of international migration, but in general, the province left 2,5 thousand people.
