Dear CERBA Members and Partners,
According to the information kindly provided by CERBA Corporate Member – Intermark Relocation, please be informed that in accordance with the governmental decree No. 3675-p dated 30 December 2020 family members of HQS employees may enter Russia based on the approved lists.
What are the changes?
1. Family members of HQS employees (spouses, children, parents, adoptees and adopters) are allowed to enter Russia if they are included in the lists, which have been sent to the MIA of Russia and the FSS of Russia by the federal executive body responsible for the area of employer company’s activities. Previously only HQS employees themselves were eligible to enter based on this condition while the entry of dependents was allowed only based on individual approvals from the Russian government.
NB! Though the legislation also acknowledges spouses of employee’s children, spouses of parents, grandparents and grandchildren as HQS dependents, such family members are not eligible to enter based on the approved lists.
For the purpose of getting an entry approval for HQS family members, the employer company must submit a relevant petition to the responsible Russian ministry (same way as for the principal employee).
2. Presenting a valid labour agreement at the border control is no longer mandatory for HQS or their family members.
Who is affected?
HQS employees, their family members and employer companies.
