Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has passed a law on a multi-entry working visa for residents of the advance development territory (ADT) in the Far East and the Vladivostok Free Port.
TASS reports this law simplifies the application process and extends the duration of the work visa to three years. The current term is 12 months.
According to the news agency, the visa will be issued to “foreign nationals and representatives and employees of foreign companies that made an employment agreement with an ADT resident of the Far East or Vladivostok Free Port for the purpose of investment programme implementation.”
The visa will be valid up to one year for negotiations on an investment agreement.
The new law shortens the review period of the mentioned category of visa application documents of foreigners by a Russian diplomatic mission to five days.
