How to find a job for a foreigner
So, are you a foreign citizen and want to work in Russia. First and foremost you need to see amendments to the Federal law "On legal status of foreign citizens in the Russian Federation" adopted in January 2007. The changes primarily relate to persons who come from countries that have concluded an agreement with Russia on mutual visa-free space. Citizens of Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, etc. – they do not need to obtain a visa in order to stay on the territory of our state.
At the entrance to the territory of Russia, all foreigners must follow the rules of stay in our country. When crossing the Russian border you will need to obtain and complete a migration card. In the future it will be the mark of entry. In addition, entering as a foreign citizen you will need to have on hand a visa, which will clearly state the period of your lawful stay in Russia.
The main condition for the stay of foreigners on the territory of the Russian Federation is their registration in the migration service. For three days you definitely need to go back there.
