Violation of Migration Law

Violation of Migration Law

The Constitutional Court of the RF upheld the decision of the Ministry of Interior to deny entry to the RF to foreigners for prior violation of Russian migration law. The following case of precedent occurred:
An Uzbek citizen stayed in Russia and exceeded his 90-day visa-free stay in the RF by 207 days. When he returned the first time to Russia after one year, he was not presented with any evidence of a violation of the law. Another year later, when he tried to return the second time, he was suddenly banned from entering Russia. Namely, he was banned from entering Russia for 5 years by a court-approved decision of the Ministry of Interior.
Generally, the duration of temporary stay of a foreign citizen in the RF is determined by the period of validity of the visa issued to him. In case of entry of a foreign citizen into the RF in a way that does not require a visa, this duration may not exceed ninety days.
According to lawyers, this case of precedent represents a tightening of the situation of foreigners. It makes the challenge of any criminal prosecution for violation of the residence regime meaningless.
