The Russian Federal Migration Service (FMS) is creating special conditions for foreign top managers to enter (Russia), and it hopes for reciprocal concessions, deputy director of the Russian Federal Migration Service Yekaterina Yegorova told journalists today.
This concerns foreigners who work in areas that require higher education. "This mainly means staff of foreign companies which invest in Russia," she said, adding: "We are creating comfortable conditions for their entry to Russia." In particular, the assignment of quotas has been cancelled for top managers, and conditions have been created for the easy and rapid submission of documents to work in Russia, she said.
Yegorova said that a special centre would soon open in Moscow, which will receive staff of foreign companies.
The Federal Migration Service hopes for a two-sided form of cooperation, she said. "Our businessmen also travel abroad, and we would like comfortable conditions to be created for them too," she said. The Federal Migration Service is working with organizations such as the American Chamber of Commerce, the Association of European Businesses and the Indian Business Alliance, she said.
