On August 5, 2020, Federal law No. 16-FZ "On amendments to the Federal law "On the legal status of foreign citizens in the Russian Federation" comes into force.

Now foreign students who study on a full-time basis in educational institutions of higher education under a state-accredited program and work in their free time can work without obtaining a work permit.

If a foreign citizen has finished or stopped studying in such an organization, the employment contract concluded with him/her is subject to termination.

This is also to remind you that it is the obligation of the employer to notify the territorial body of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia about the conclusion and termination (termination) of an employment contract with the foreign citizen.
